“Sophie is doing it with me. She cooks fresh food every single day, I’ve lost over three and a half, she’s lost three stone.”
As host Lorraine fawned at his impressive weight loss, Shayne continued: “A lot of it is common sense and food. It’s very easy to fall into the trap.”
Sophie Austin, who is best known for playing Lindsey Butterfield on Coronation Street rival, Channel 4’s soap, Hollyoaks, initially embarked on her weight loss journey by supporting Shayne.
She attended U.P Fitness in Cheshire alongside Shaybe for support and to keep fit, and in a few months the acting couple completely transformed their physiques.
However, Sophie’s journey wasn’t without difficulty as it was reported that during her weight loss transformation she battled gallbladder complications which lead to removal surgery and sepsis, before reaching an impressive 19kg weight loss.
Speaking about her journey, Sophie said: “I never thought I would feel the way I do now, I never did. It’s been brilliant.”
Sophie, who left Hollyoaks in 2016, gave birth to their daughter Willow in December 2016.
“I put on a lot of weight when I was pregnant. It was a free-for-all – I was eating for four, almost. Both myself and my partner Shayne were eating a lot and using it as an excuse. Then after I had my daughter the weight didn’t go. I didn’t have the time to go to the gym and I was always knackered.
“I think I saw a picture of myself – I was all dressed up and I just looked really lost. I just looked like I just had no confidence in myself. I think that I never felt very confident about what I looked like, even before when I was really skinny.

“I never felt good about myself even then because I wasn’t eating right. I wasn’t eating enough. And then obviously over-eating. So I never felt like me. And I think that having confidence gives you power.”
Former Coronation Street star, Shayne, also completed his own transformation with U.P Fitness last year, losing 11kg over 21 weeks.
Discussing working out alongside her partner, Sophie said: “We have been spurring each other on. I will say to Shayne that I can definitely see a difference in him – not just physically, but his attitude.
“I feel like he’s got his confidence back,” she added.
“He’s nailing things because he’s got that confidence and he believes in himself again.
“I’m just so proud of him because I think he’d got to a point where he was unhappy with how he looked and people commenting on his appearance.”
The talk show host, Lorraine Kelly, 60, could easily relate to Shayne as she has also gone through her very own weight loss transformation in recent years.
Previously Lorraine revealed that after noticing herself gaining weight, the Scottish journalist decided to change up her lifestyle. The host revealed that she made one simple change to slim down. Lorraine transformed from a size 14 to a size 10.
Speaking on This Morning, she said regular aerobic exercise helped kick start her weight loss and unsurprisingly, Lorraine pointed to her own weight loss DVDs as her key to weight loss.
Speaking on This Morning, she said: “I really look forward to my classes, and with the new DVD we wanted to show what a class was like.
“It’s great going to keep fit but mentally it also makes me feel better.”
