Today marks a year since Tina Malone revealed her new body to the world, after having £50,000 of surgery.
The 53-year-old, who moved back to Liverpool three years ago, lost 11st 4lb in 16 months when she had a gastric band fitted six years ago, reaching a size eight and slimming down to 8st 2lb.
Tina had surgery on her arms to remove her bingo wings, had excess stomach flesh removed and had a boob job, facelift and eye lift.
The reaction to Tina’s weight loss and subsequent surgery was massive and even now people regularly comment on her transformation.
Since the pictures were revealed Tina has had a roller coaster of a year, appearing regularly on TV shows and becoming a media personality.
Tina has regularly encouraged people to get a gastric band such as Gemma Collins, who she called a lazy fat cow.
She has also appeared on This Morning several times, where she said how she’d told her friend that her son was in danger of becoming a “fatty with no mates and no bird.”
Earlier this month Tina showed off her amazing figure at the Creme de la Creme ball, wearing a size six ball gown and saying how she cried when she saw herself all dolled up.
And Tina is clearly determined to maintain her weight loss as she recently sold off her extensive wardrobe , with some designer gear up for sale.
The future seems bright for The Shameless actress as she revealed she is planning to renew her wedding vows and try for a baby.
She said: “We’re planning on renewing our vows next year and I’ve already been looking at dresses,
“I’ve always had the dream of being the perfect bride, so I thought: “Why not do it again?
“I’m 54 next year and I’m the youngest I’ve ever felt.”
