Light as a feather! Actress Linda Robson shows off her new figure after losing 3st in four months

It appears Pauline Quirke isn't the only Birds Of A Feather star losing weight these days.

Her former co-star and on-screen sister Linda Robson has revealed she too has transformed her figure after losing three stone in three months.

The actress, 53, admitted she didn't realise she was classed 'obese' until she had lost all the weight.

The North Londoner admits she has even started borrowing her teenage daughter's clothes because her old wardrobe is too big.

Robson is now a size 12 after dropping from a size 20, going from 14 1/2st to 11st.

She told the new issue of Woman magazine: 'When I was told: “You're no longer obese,” I replied: “I didn't know I was.”

'At my heaviest I was 15 stone, but I hid it well. I wore bias cut skirts and I always wore scarves.

'I used to be a size 20 on my top half
(because I've got big boobs that I hate) but now Pauline and I are both
size 12. How amazing is that

'I joke, 'It'll be Lesley Joseph (who
played Dorian in Birds Of A Feather) who's the fat one now.'

Her
weight loss comes after Quirke shifted eight and a half stone after
following the Lighter Life plan – which Robson also followed.

Robson added: 'Now that I've lost weight, I feel so
much better, much more confident.

'It takes me less time to get ready
because I'm not trying to cover up bits of my body anymore.'

The actress admitted that while her daughter Bobbie is thrilled with her weight-loss, she has asked her Mum not to become skinnier than she is.

She jokes: 'I never thought in a million years I'd be
swapping clothes with my 16-year-old daughter – Bobbie says “you better
not get smaller than me, mum”.'
