Ap­peal of TV’S Beale

The People - - NEWS FEATURES -

GIL­LIAN Tayl­forth has re­vealed the se­cret be­hind her youth­ful glow. Easten­ders’ Kathy Beale, who turned heads at the Soap Awards, said she has to put in a lot of ef­fort to stay in such great shape.

She said: “I’m al­ways in the gym. I went on hol­i­day for two weeks re­cently and I was work­ing out for two days.

“It takes a lot. It doesn’t come easy. I’m telling you. It’s hard work.”

Gil­lian, 62, said her fruit-in­fused drinks are keep­ing her look­ing young but make her the butt of jokes on set.

“They all laugh at me. I hope it’s all pay­ing off,” she added.

Gil­lian made a shock re­turn to Al­bert Square in 2015 af­ter it was re­vealed her char­ac­ter’s death had been faked.

Now she would love to stay in Wal­ford.

She said: “I’m hop­ing I’m go­ing to be sign­ing a new deal. My con­tract is nearly up and I would re­ally love to stay, but you never know be­cause it’s up to the pow­ers that be.

“I’ve been here three years this year, it’s gone so quickly. I ab­so­lutely love it.”
