Tina O’Brien has claimed she lost her confidence after having a baby.
The actress had baby Scarlett, who is now 19 months, with fellow Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas but the couple split last year.
Tina, 26, told New! magazine: “I put on a lot of weight and was looking at other mums in magazines, thinking, ‘That’s how I should look.’ I took a really bad knock.”
She also revealed she was “absolutely devastated” by their break up, saying: “We hadn’t been getting on well, but I just assumed it was a new baby blip and that everything would be OK.”
But she admitted she’s dating someone new – a 35-year-old who works in production on Waterloo Road, where she has recently finished filming.
The actress added that Ryan, who still stars as Weatherfield’s Jason Grimshaw, is a “brilliant father”.
