    Default Ex-EastEnder Natalie Cassidy's fitness DVD tops the charts

    As frumpy Sonia Jackson in EastEnders she was never seen as the svelte glamourpuss of Albert Square.


    Nine months after leaving the BBC1 soap, and leaping around in skin-tight pink hotpants, actress Natalie Cassidy has become the unlikely fitness guru of 2008.
    After losing over two and a half stone and dropping four dress sizes, the 24-year-old British star's fitness DVD is the biggest - and fastest - selling exercise programme of all time. Scroll down for more...
    From fat to fit: Natalie Cassidy's fitness DVD


    The Then & Now work-out, which shows Miss Cassidy performing a series of strenuous boxing moves and taxing stomach crunches, has topped the celebrity fitness DVD chart, beating off Davina McCall, Rosemary Conley's Brand New You workout with Coleen Nolan and Strictly Come Dancing stars', Karen Hardy and Erin Boag's Dancersize own training plans.
    Now the London-born actress, whose weight has plummeted from 10st 8lbs to 8st 1lbs, is being hailed as the new Jane Fonda after being approached by ITV to have her own weekly fitness slot.
    "Natalie has shown that through healthy eating and a determined aerobic exercise programme, it is possible for someone not naturally skinny to reach their target weight," said a television insider. Scroll down for more...

    "For almost 15 years she endeared herself to the nationwide as down-trodden Sonia but since leaving the show, she has transformed herself into a stunning, glamorous young lady.
    "She is a natural in front of the TV and, given how her DVD has sold-out, it is clear women especially relate to her.
    "As a result she is currently in talks with several producers to be given either her own regular fitness slot - a bit like Jane Fonda or even Diana Moran, aka The Green Goddess. Scroll down for more...

    "No-one is more taken aback by her success than Natalie herself - she is absolutely chuffed, and, of course, determined to keep the weight off."
    Indeed, so popular has the DVD been, supermarket giant Tescos has been forced to restock many of its stores three times while copies are going for sale on eBay above the standard retail price of 14.99.
    Sales of fitness DVDs overall are up 75 per cent on the same period last year with the UK market now worth over 15 million a year.
    "Dieters are going crazy for Natalie's fitness DVD," said Joel Hanson, a spokesman for Tescos.
    "Natalie appeals to ordinary people because of her fantastic weight loss recently. And because of her down-to-earth gritty role in EastEnders she's far more believable than skinny model types who usually bring out fitness DVDs.
    "This could well be the start of an extra career for Natalie. It may even lead to her leading the nation on mass work-outs on morning TV."

    I am not trying to be mean but I wonder how much PS she had to get to her desired weight? (I know she had a boob job a few years ago). I remember Jade Goody having secret liposuction before filming her fitness video then saying that her slimmer body was all thanks to doing the routines from her fitness video . Then the dumb turd got found out

    Anywho i think she [Natalie] looks great especially in the black dress.

    She's only 24? She's very hard-faced for 24.

    I was noticing the PS myself, as well as the strategically sprayed contouring of the tan. She *is* fit though - that much is evident, so even with some lipo, she did manage to achieve some good muscle shape.

    ahh, she'll probably put it back on in a year or two. She does look a heck of a lot older than 24 as well.

    Her face is still as ugly as hell, maybe she should PS that, too

    Good for her for losing that weight, but I bet she will have a very hard time KEEPING it off. I don't think she's ever been this thin. Not even when she joined Eastenders (at the age of 10 or something??)

    I think she looks great. She's working the little black dress. She looks MUCH better.

    Life is hard. If she's determined, she can keep it off. As long as it wasn't a fad diet, I'm sure (hope) she'll be fine. As long as she didn't have PS, she's very inspiring!

    I think she looks great in clothes but not so much in the workout gear, those big fake boobies she bought look ridiculous now, and I think her face looked better a little fuller.
