Loose Women star Penny Lancaster, 49, opened up about her lockdown struggles on social media this afternoon and detailed her weight gain, after turning to food and drink for comfort. The wife of rocker Sir Rod Stewart said “anxiety and fear” of the coronavirus pandemic, as well as entering the menopause, had led her to gain over one stone while stuck at home.

Former model Penny took a picture of herself at her heaviest in order to “shame” herself into action.

She revealed a change in diet and exercise had helped her lose a total of 17lbs in weight and an impressive four inches from her waistline.

Penny took to Instagram to share the results of her weight loss with her 107,000 followers.

The mum-of-two posted a before and after snap, which showed her in a white bra and a pair of blue jeans.

Next to the pictures, Penny wrote: “During the lockdown I found myself entering my menopause and the side effects were exaggerated by the anxiety and fear for the virus and the unknown.”

“I turned to food and drink as comfort and gained over a stone,” she went on to say.

Referring to the before picture, she added: “As a wake up call I shamed by taking a photo.

“It worked and with a new diet and exercise, I lost 17 lbs and 4 inched off my waist in 8 weeks!”

Penny, who shares two sons with Rod, 75 – Alastair, 14, and Aiden, nine, recently spoke out about her menopause experience on television.

She told Andi Peters, who was standing in for ITV host Lorraine Kelly on her self-titled breakfast show, that she originally thought she had COVID-19 as she had a “soaring” temperature.

“I’m actually coping alright, talking to a doctor to understand it,” Penny said to the host, when asked how she was dealing with it.

“The more we talk about it the easier it is to understand the problems that come along with it,” she added.
