THE GOSSIP: Since starting Strictly Come Dancing, actress Lisa Riley has been dropping dress size after dress size. And while her energetic routines are impressing the judges, her new slimmer physique is starting to annoy the costume department. Each week the contestants get a new glitzy, glamourous and often figure hugging frock but – because of Lisa’s impressive weight loss – ensuring her outfits fit her is fast becoming a nightmare…
A SOURCE SAYS: “Practically every week there is an emergency job moments before she’s due to go on air – she’s like the incredible shrinking woman. We can’t take in frocks fast enough.” (The Sun)
RADIOTIMES.COM VERDICT: 4/5. Lisa has admitted herself that the weight is dropping off, saying “I was rehearsing the Viennese waltz and my trousers fell down.”
