She welcomed her daughter Lilah with boyfriend Ryan Thomas in June and is the owner of a health and wellness website called Results With Lucy.

And Lucy Mecklenburgh candidly exposed the realities of her post-pregnancy body in a Q&A with her Instagram followers on Thursday who said she struggles to find time to exercise like most other people.

The television star, 31, who also shares two-year-old son Roman with former actor Corrie revealed that she has gone up two dress sizes and her busy schedule rarely leaves time for exercise – although she has come to terms with that.

During the chat, a follower asked, ‘Are you back to your pre-pregnancy weight? Do you exercise? diet? I don’t like me anymore’.

Lucy agreed writing: ‘I get it, so many changes to our bodies go so fast that sometimes it feels like I’m not used to my body’.

‘I have wider hips, a bigger belly and bust, and two dress sizes bigger than before Lilah’.

He continued: ‘I am about a stone heavier than before but try not to weigh myself too much. I rarely have time to exercise but I love postnatal pilates. I try to walk a few times a week and run around after toddlers all day haha’.

‘Dietary-wise I’ve started to try and eat how I used to be as much as possible mainly for energy and to feel good’.

He concludes: ‘Bathroom cooking help and fast food that everyone in the house will eat. I don’t follow a strict diet just balance and variety’.

In newborn August, Lilah was rushed to hospital and put on oxygen after being ‘very bad’ with bronchiolitis.

Lucy shared a photo of her daughter in a hospital bed and explained that she was fed through a tube as she battled a respiratory infection, which is common in babies under two years old.

Lilah contracted bronchiolitis from Lucy and fiancĂ© Ryan Thomas’ eldest son, Roman, two, who contracted the condition in pre-school, and suffered “coughing and choking” before being rushed to hospital.

Lucy also shared a photo of her breastfeeding her baby, while thanking NHS doctors and nurses for their help.
