Actress likes to stay slim
Samia Ghadie has admitted that she wouldn’t want to put on extra pounds for a storyline.
The petite actress, who plays Maria Connor in Coronation Street, likes to keep fit and is keen to keep things that way.
I wouldn’t be happy [if I had to put on weight],’ says Samia, 31.
I just feel nicer in clothes if I am slim. I don’t watch what I eat – I eat what I like and luckily most of that happens to be pretty healthy.’
It’s funny, when people see me in the street they say: “You look a lot bigger on the telly,”‘ the mum-of-one admits.
I suppose it is a backhanded sort of compliment!’
