Oh My Bod: Andrea Mclean
‘I make a really good rum punch’ Loose Women star Andrea Mclean, 48, shares her health secrets
height: 5ft 6in WEIGHT: 9st 7lb DRESS SIZE: 10 Hey Andrea! What’s your favourite way to stay in shape?
I go to the gym. Sometimes I’m really into it and I go three times a week and feel amazing and then I don’t do it for two weeks and think, ‘I cant bear it, I have to go back again.’
I try and stretch most days. I get very clunky. I’ve got this great app called Asana Rebel (free) and it’s really good. Anybody can fit in five minutes. I’ve found it really helps.
Do you follow any fitspos on Instagram?
I’ve got a trainer I see once a week, but I don’t always go! He’s called Ben Lee-baw (@benleebaw) – his fitness stuff is amazing.
Is there a body part you struggle to keep in shape?
I think the same as everybody; tum and bum and thighs! I’m really lucky that my job is behind a desk; from desk up I look completely fine but I have a rounded tummy. I struggle with that.
What’s your guilty food pleasure?
About a year ago I gave up hardcore sugar because I had a hysterectomy. Now I genuinely don’t like the taste of biscuits and chocolate any more. My pleasure is a very large glass of wine or two in the evening. Plus I also make a really good rum punch!
Ooh! How often do you drink?
About two to three nights a week I have a glass of wine. I try not to drink every night.
