Lisa Riley has proudly showed off her incredible body transformation following corrective surgery to remove the excess skin after losing 11 stone. Appearing on Thursday's Loose Women, the 40-year-old opened up about her journey as she admitted she's still "taking time" to digest it all. "It's incredible, it really, really is," she told the audience. "I'm 12 and a bit stone now. I'm still getting used to it all myself. I'd never wear anything like this." Dressed in a vibrant red jumpsuit, the TV star happily added: "Five weeks ago to the day, I was there on the operating table. Still for me every day there's something new. I couldn't go on as I was, everything was moving and jigging around. I'd go to my Zumba class and it'd be so painful."

Over the past few years, Lisa has been keeping fans updated with her progress. Earlier this month, she took to Twitter to show just how different she now looks with a before and after photo. Captioning the two photos side-by-side, the former Emmerdale actress wrote: "Sometimes it hits me, TRULY don't recognise the person in the other photo, feel proud of choices I was ALLOWED to make, decided to make change." The pictures showed a remarkable difference, with the presenter dropping from a size 30 to size 12 dress size.
