Martine McCutcheon reveals her former Diet Coke addiction left other mother’s ‘absolutely disgusted’

She’s recently shown off her incredible weight loss.

And Martine McCutcheon has revealed that before she embraced a healthier lifestyle, she found herself drinking eight cans of Diet Coke a day.

The actress, 46, confessed she was addicted to the fizzy drink leading her to be judged by other mother’s at the school gate.

‘I’d wake up then be walking my seven-year-old into the playground with a can of Diet Coke and the mothers looked at me disgusted, absolutely disgusted — ‘She’s not got her posh coffee cup, she’s rocked up with a Diet Coke.

‘I was drinking it at that time of day and even before I went to bed. I always had a can next to me. I loved that little buzz it gave me.’

Sugar and caffeine within fizzy drinks can became addictive as each can contains around 34.5mg, the equivalent of half a cup of instant coffee.

This can be addictive and trigger withdrawal symptoms, such as headaches, insomnia and fatigue, even within just a few days.

But fizzy drinks often contain phosphoric acid, the ingredient that gives them their appealing tangy taste and ‘tingle’. In large amounts, this can affect skin and muscles, and even damage the heart and kidneys over time.

Luckily the former soap star managed to kick the habit and even told the Gavin and Stacey star that she is now considering returning to the limelight after taking time off to raise seven-year-old son Rafferty.

Martine, who shares the youngster with her husband Jack McManus, 37 said: ‘I took time out of the industry because my priority was to become a mother. It took a lot longer than I thought . . . I had a lot of problems keeping babies.

‘The fluffy world of t*ts and teeth didn’t matter any more. There was a far bigger lesson to be learned and a far bigger picture to be looked at.’

Before adding: ‘Now my son is seven I’m still a bit obsessed with being a mum. I still begrudge anything that takes me away from him for longer than a few hours because I’m so in love with him.

‘I’m doing a movie, playing the very small part of an ex-ballerina, with John Cleese in Budapest in Hungary this year. I am starting to look at other things too.’

In February, Martine revealed it has taken her ‘such a long time to do what works for (her)’ as she opened up about her health and staying in shape.

In an interview with OK! magazine, the Love Actually star noted that she didn’t like to discuss her weight but told how she stays in shape by following the 80/20 rule diet.

Discussing her frame, Martine told how it hasn’t always been straightforward in finding the right healthy eating lifestyle that works for her, with the star stating how important it is to just be the ‘best version’ of herself.

She said: ‘I think it takes a long time to work out what your own recipe is. It’s taken me such a long time to look through all the stuff that’s out there, and do just what works for me. So it’s not as simple as just going on a crazy diet. I just feel it’s really important to encourage women to just be the best version of themselves.’

Detailing her diet, she added: ‘The 80/20 rule is what works for me. For 80% of my week, I will have mainly just healthy proteins, vegetables and fruit, organic and veggie juices, and Flora ProActiv spread. And then I’ll have treats 20% of the time.’

The mum-of-one also shared that she keeps in shape by walking her dogs everyday after the school run, with the outings good for both ‘my head and my health’.

On taking cold showers to help with Fibromyalgia, she explained: ‘It’s not every day, but I have one when I can.

‘I’ll have a cold shower at the end [of a hot shower] and stay in there as long as I can. It’s really kind of makes me feel like I’ve been WD-40’d.’

Last year Martine gave an interview to Hello Magazine and spoke about living with Lyme disease, which according to the NHS causes ‘fever, headache, fatigue and a skin rash called erythema migraines’, during the pandemic.

She told the publication: ‘If you have any underlying illness you can’t take risks.

‘As with any chronic condition you can have flare-ups. When I go outside I always have my mask and my gloves and take it very seriously.

‘I have been really good emotionally for a long time and I have felt a lot calmer. It has been good to realise it is okay to do things at your own pace.’

Lyme disease is caused by a bacteria that is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected black-legged ticks that can lead to long term and life changing health conditions.

    Ashley Tisdale hits the beach with daughter Jupiter, one, and husband Christopher French in Malibu

    Ashley Tisdale wowed in a baby blue bikini while hitting the beach with her husband Christopher French and their one-year-old daughter Jupiter on a particularly warm afternoon in Malibu, California over the weekend.

    While beating the heat with a dip in the ocean, the 36-year-old High School Musical star was every inch the doting mom as she carried her toddler, who she dressed in a cute pink swimsuit with red hearts on it.

    After soaking up some quality time with her baby girl, the actress took a few minutes to herself to go for a swim as Jupiter stayed on shore with her dad, 40.

    Once in the water, Tisdale let her hair free from its bun and splashed around with a bikini-clad pal before grabbing her daughter’s bucket to fill with water to make some sandcastles.

    The Disney Channel alum looked incredible during her trip to the beach while displaying her toned figure, two years after removing her breast implants after struggling with ‘minor health issues’ for years.

    At the time, she got vulnerable about the decision with her Instagram followers and struggling with insecurities.

    ‘Hey guys, this is probably the most personal post I’ve ever shared. As you know, I’ve been very open about my mental health journey and feel that this is equally important,’ she penned.

    She then admitted something she had never talked about before: ‘Years ago I underwent breast enhancement surgery.’

    ‘Prior to the surgery, I constantly felt my body was less than, and thought this change would make me feel more whole and more secure about myself. And for a short period of time…it did,’ she admitted.

    Then ‘minor health issues’ crept up as she felt there were things that were ‘not adding up.’

    The star said she had ‘food sensitivities as well as gut issues.’

    And she noted the full story could be found on frenshe.com, her website where she has written about her personal struggles like anxiety.

    Tisdale then said she thought the poor health could be caused by my implants.

    ‘So, last winter I decided to undergo implant removal,’ she said.

    ‘This journey has been one of growth, self discovery, self acceptance and most importantly self-love.

    ‘This picture above was taken two months after my explant surgery and I think you can tell just how happy I am to finally be fully me.

    She added that ‘over the years I’ve met with many holistic and non-holistic doctors’ and has learned the importance of ‘living a non-toxic life.’

    The singer then said: ‘I’m super excited to share with you what I’ve learned thus far, and would love for you to take this journey with me by following @frenshe, where we take an honest approach to our well-being and openly speak to health, beauty and everything in between.

    Britney Spears’ ex Jason Alexander ‘attempted to enter her bedroom while she was in it’

    Jason Alexander allegedly attempted to enter Britney Spears’ bedroom while she was in it during his wedding crashing earlier this month.

    A former security guard for Britney testified during a preliminary hearing for Jason on Monday that Jason attempted to open her bedroom door, however it was locked, reports TMZ. Britney was inside the room at the time.

    The guard, who was fired as a result of the crashing, claimed Alexander repeatedly said he needed to speak with Britney and was searching for her, despite not being on the guest list.

    Britney’s former guard claimed Jason headed directly to the pop star’s bedroom after sneaking onto her property and entering the main house.

    The guard also said Jason had been seen numerous times leading up to the nuptials on the outskirts of her property.

    He alleged Jason had also been seen the day before the wedding, even though he had been told to stay away from the property.

    A detective with the Ventura County Sheriff also served as a witness and testified that Britney had called Alexander ‘scary’ during a conversation with her longtime agent Cade Hudson.

    Margot Robbie inline skates while hand-in-hand with America Ferrera on LA set of Barbie movie

    She has been busy filming the Barbie movie in recent weeks.

    And Margot Robbie not only showcased her acting chops but also showcased her skating skills on her latest day on set.

    The 31-year-old Oscar nominee was on inline skates as she was hand-in-hand with castmate America Ferrera as they continued to film Barbie in Venice Beach on Monday morning.

    Margot and her 38-year-old co-star seemed to be having a blast as they shared some laughs while gliding on the famous Los Angeles beachside sidewalk called The Strand.

    As opposed to the actual doll, it seems like there aren’t very many costume changes in the film as she sported the same outfit she has been seen rocking on several days on set the past few weeks.

    Margot wore a hot pink ensemble comprised of a low-cut halter crop top and and lace-up bell bottom pants that were decorated with metallic stars.

    The blonde beauty wore her cropped locks in a chic straight style and and had on a glamorous palette of makeup that included a rosy blush, a pink lipstick and light gold eyeshadow.

    She accessorized with dangly silver star earrings and tied a matching pink bandana around her neck.

    Margot and her co-star donned a matching pair of neon yellow inline skates with pink laces and wheels.

    America donned a quirky button-down shirt featuring white and red vertical stripe and blue panels along with black trousers.

    She wore her brunette tresses down as she showcased her natural looks by wearing complementary make-up on her face.

    It was a busy day on set as Will Ferrell was also seen inline skating on the Venice Beach set.

    Will contrasted Margot’s look as he sported a black suit with light pink dress shirt and hot pink tie along with all black inline skates.

    According to THR, Will will play the CEO of a toy company that ‘may or not be’ Mattel.

    According to Vulture, the film is ‘a fish-out-of-water story about a doll who is ousted from toy society for not being perfect enough.’

    Another synopsis on IMDB of the movie reads: ‘A doll living in “Barbieland” is expelled for not being perfect enough and sets off on an adventure in the real world. A Live-action feature film based on the popular line of Barbie toys.’

    Oscar winner Ryan Gosling is starring opposite Margot as he takes on the role of Barbie’s boyfriend Ken.

    Will is said to be playing the CEO of the toy company that may or may not be Mattel.

    Little Women and Ladybird filmmaker Greta Gerwig is directing the project, and wrote the script for the film with her longtime partner Noah Baumbach.

    Other members of the cast include Kate McKinnon, Michael Cera, Emma Mackey, Kingsley Ben-Adir, America Ferrara, Rhea Perlman, Ariana Greenblatt, Ana Cruz Kayne, Alexandra Shipp, Ritu Arya, Sharon Rooney, Connor Swindells, Scott Evans and Jamie Demetriou.

    Fans think Emma will be playing the role of Skipper, the younger sister of Barbie, thanks to her resemblance to Margot.

    Also linked to the film are Bridgerton’s Nicola Coughlan, actress Saoirse Ronan and pop sensation Dua Lipa – but these have not yet been confirmed.

    It has been rumored that there will be different versions of Barbie and Ken, with one Barbie said to be portrayed by Issa Rae and the other might be Hari Nef.

    Marvel’s Simu Liu and new Doctor Who Ncuti Gatwa are also said be playing other Kens.

    New York Times reporter Kyle Buchanan recently tweeted: ‘I am hearing incredible BARBIE goss at Cannes. For one, I’m hearing that Ryan Gosling is not the only Ken in the BARBIE film. Simu Liu and Ncuti Gatwa also play Ken.

    ‘And, by the same token, Margot Robbie is not the film’s only Barbie. Issa Rae and Hari Nef play different Barbies…’

    Meanwhile, all the way back in 2016, it had originally been announced that Amy Schumer would be taking on the role – but she bowed out just four months later.

    ‘Sadly, I’m no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts,’ she said at the time. ‘The film has so much promise, and Sony and Mattel have been great partners. I’m bummed but look forward to seeing Barbie on the big screen.’

    However, later Amy admitted that it was less about scheduling and more about creative differences. ‘They definitely didn’t want to do it the way I wanted to do it, the only way I was interested in doing it,’ she told The Hollywood Reporter.

    ‘The idea that that’s just what every woman must want, right there, I should have gone, ‘You’ve got the wrong gal,’” she added.

    In celebration of the Mattel doll’s 60th anniversary, Barbie will be released in cinemas on July 21, 2023.

    Caroline Stanbury ROBBED in Mykonos: Real Housewives of Dubai star forced to hire extra security

    Caroline Stanbury, her husband Sergio Carrallo and their family had a ‘nightmare’ of a start to their Greek vacation after being robbed their first night in Mykonos.

    Stanbury, 46, revealed on Twitter that the home where her family was staying was burglarized just a few hours after they had arrived to the vacation hot spot.

    Thankfully, no one was harmed, however, Caroline said when she came back to the house she walked in to find the looters still there, pilfering their belongings.

    ‘So …. having set off on our holiday and landing within 3 hours we were robbed,’ Caroline penned on social media, adding that the trip ‘turned into a nightmare.’

    The family is currently on holiday to celebrate her daughter Yasmine completing her general certificate of secondary education (the equivalent of a high school diploma).

    ‘So much gone but we are all safe!’ Stanbury continued. ‘We came home to the men still in our house.’

    The blonde mother of three shared images of their busted in door and declared that these types of crimes wouldn’t happen in her home town of Dubai.

    She also revealed that since the break in, she hired additional security for her family while they attempt to enjoy the rest of their trip.

    Her husband Sergio added in his own post: ‘It was so scary that I can’t express it.’

    ‘This is the f**king problem with the society and people.. and why the world is becoming this way,’ he added and echoed his wife’s sentiment that things are safer in Dubai.

    The group seems to be shaking off the incident, however, and trying to make the best of their holiday.

    In a series of social media photos and videos, a swimsuit clad Caroline smiled warmly while soaking up the sun on the shores of the Mediterranean.

    She filmed a selfie video on the beach wearing a yellow one-piece and a Christian Dior bucket hat.

    Meanwhile, on this season of Real Housewives of Dubai, Caroline and Sergio are dealing with issues around growing their new family.

    Stanbury worried that if she didn’t have a baby with her younger fiancé that he would leave her on last Wednesday’s episode. The season was filmed prior to the pair tying the knot on 11/11.

    ‘I’m very scared to do this again, but if I can’t have the baby Sergio wont stay, fact,’ Stanbury, said in a confessional. The episode titled Desert Détente opened with Caroline and Sergio at the building site of their new house. The architect pointed out that there was a baby room in the building plans.

    ‘What happens if the baby can’t happen?’ Caroline asked Sergio. ‘The baby is going to happen,’ Sergio said. ‘That’s why we have our baby room.’

    ‘But darling I am 45 years old you need to understand that,’ Caroline said.

    ‘My parents have to be grandparents,’ Sergio said. ‘The Carrallo generation has to keep going, honey.’

    ‘No one said you are not having a baby. I just said I’m 45, you need to be realistic ‘ Caroline told him.
