Two months after giving birth, Catherine Tyldesley is ready to hit the British Soap Awards 2015 with her co-stars

She might not be up for any individual gongs but Catherine Tyldesley has a big night in store at the British Soap Awards 2015.

Why? Because it’s the Coronation Street star’s first big evening out since becoming a mummy!

Catherine, 31, welcomed her baby boy Alfie with fiancé Tom Pitfield in March so she’s been looking forward to hitting the glitzy ceremony in Manchester with her Corrie co-stars.

‘Really excited about the Soap Awards as its a chance for all the cast to get together and I’ve missed everyone so much!!’ the actress recently revealed in her online blog.

‘It will also be mine and Tom’s first night out since giving birth to our gorgeous son Alfie 7 weeks ago.’

First time mum Cath knows that being without Alfie could prove challenging at times though.

‘I guarantee we’ll be looking at photos of him 10 minutes into the night…,’ she confesses. Bless!

Catherine looked absolutely gorgeous when she rolled up to the ceremony in a daring low-cut yellow frock and had a definite glow about her as she posed for photos on the red carpet.

Despite not rushing into her post-baby fitness regime, Catherine is clearly in great shape and didn’t have any trouble getting into her dress for the evening. The blonde star – who plays barmaid Eva Price on the cobbles – recently shared a sneaky picture of the frock with her followers and revealed that she’d actually had to have it taken in!

‘This week I went for a fitting for my Soap Awards dress. This cheered me up no end!’ the mum-of-one wrote in her Hello! blog.

‘Not just because the dress is beautiful but because Mark Melia only took my measurements two weeks ago and he had to take the dress in a good couple of inches!

‘Finally starting to get my waistline back 🙂 My yummy-mummy gym sessions haven’t been in vain!’

Well done, Cath! The actress’s fella Tom happens to be a personal trainer so the couple have been working out together in the past few weeks.

Fitness is clearly a family hobby though as Catherine recently shared an adorable photo of Alfie strapped onto Tom‘s torso after a workout session – awww!

Let’s hope the new mum has a fun night out!
