Former EastEnders star likes her treats

Kara Tointon loves chocolate as much as she loves Artem Chigvintsev.

The ex-EastEnders actress follows a balanced diet but always makes sure she has her daily sweet treat.

‘[My top tip is] everything in moderation, and don’t deny yourself anything,’ says Kara, 30.

‘Chocolate [is my downfall]. I have to have a fix every day. I can’t live without it.’

If she had to choose between taking chocolate or sexy boyfriend Artem, 31, on a lifeboat, Kara admits she’d struggle to make her decision.

‘Oh, don’t go there!’ the former Strictly Come Dancing champ says.

‘I can’t do it! No way. I’d need a bigger boat!’
