Coronation Street star will take to the water in Loch Lomond

Catherine Tyldesley is taking part in the Great Scottish Swim.

But the actress won’t be showing off her hot toned shape in a skimpy two-piece when she races through the water on 23 August.   

‘I’m not doing the whole bikini shot,’ she joked to the Daily Record at the Loch Lomond launch yesterday.

‘Everyone is in wetsuits for the open water swimming.’

It’s likely Catherine – who’s slimmed down from a size 22 to a size 10 – will upset fans with this revelation.

The star was up for Sexiest Female at the British Soap Awards last weekend but was beaten to the title by Michelle Keegan, 26.

‘I don’t think I’m sexy. It’s really nice to be nominated,’ Catherine, 30, told the Daily Star before the ceremony.

‘But I look at somebody like Michelle and I’d vote for her every year.

‘She’s absolutely stunning and it is really flattering to be nominated in a category with girls like that.’
