Under the skin
LISA RILEY’S BAGGY BODY CLUB | ITV 9PM
Actress and TV presenter Lisa Riley (best known to soap fans as Emmerdale’s Mandy Dingle) lost 12 stone in 16 months, thanks to a dedicated diet and exercise programme – but it has left her with a lot of sagging skin.
“I suppose I’ve sort of been pregnant all my life,” muses
Lisa. “Only, when a woman has a baby, it springs back – mine has lost all the spring.”
Lisa is planning to have surgery to remove her excess skin, and has met up with other people in a similar position – the self-styled Baggy Body Club. They share their experiences of losing weight only to find themselves with new hang-ups about their bodies – and with the NHS only funding the surgery in certain cases, not all of them can afford an operation.
