The Coronation Street star fights her body insecurity
‘I’m wondering how I’d make my boobs look remotely attractive,’ she laughs.
For a gorgeous, slim soap star, Shobna, 44 – who’s recently lost 1st in weight – isn’t confident about her figure.
‘If 10 is the happiest I’ve ever been about my body, then I think that would’ve been when I was a baby. Now it’s less than 5,’ she tells Now.
‘I’d change my stomach completely – my tummy texture. There’s no exercise that can get rid of that.’
But if Shobna does ever have a tummy tuck, it will because she wants it and not because of the pressure to look perfect for any man.
‘Some men are very unkind to women. I had an ex-partner who said that my body was damaged because I’d had a baby,’ she reveals.
‘Or he’d point at my tummy and go: “I can see your gut,” and I said: “Oh can you? I think you should leave my house.”‘
You go, girl!
