Birds Of A Feather star Linda Robson is now light as a feather – after shedding more than three stone.

Her huge weight loss, in a matter of only four months, comes in the wake of her pal and sitcom co-star Pauline Quirke’s dramatic slimming.

Linda showed off her new size 12 figure in a photo shoot for Woman magazine, ahead of the Birds of a Feather tour, and said she had even started borrowing her teenage daughter’s outfits.

The star, who has dropped from 14-and-a-half stone to 11 stone, admitted she had not really realised how big she was.

“When I was told: ‘You’re no longer obese’, I replied: ‘I didn’t know I was’,” she told the magazine.

Pal Pauline recently stunned many people by losing a colossal eight-and-a-half stone, and like Linda she followed the Lighter Life plan.

Robson, who admitted the dramatic change had not been easy, said: “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’.

“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 any more.”
