TV star Chelsee Healey has returned from a much-needed break from social media feeling and looking fabulous.
Chelsee, who plays Goldie McQueen in the Channel Four soap Hollyoaks, deleted all her profiles from the various platforms where she had built up huge following.
The Eccles actress, who plays feisty Goldie McQueen in the Channel Four soap, was a regular poster on Instagram giving fans an insight into her busy life combining work with life as a single mum to her daughter Coco, three.
After a two month break she’s back, and with a new determination to overhaul her diet during Tier 3 restrictions.
“You’re so stunning,” said one fan.
“Unreal,” said another.
“Gorgeous girl,” complimented another fan.
Using Instagram to explain the break Chelsee, 32, said: “Sometimes you need a break, not only from social media … space but from life! I had to take a step back and realise what’s important.
“Life’s far from perfect and neither is my head but I’m so lucky and grateful.”
She told fans that her stunning figure is down to healthy ready-prepared meals.
Chelsee told her 600,000 followers: “I’m going to use this lockdown to get my eating back on track. We are in this together. Let’s get fit and healthy together.”
The star began her career in the Rochdale school-based drama Waterloo Road and was runner-up in the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing nine years ago.
She revealed she still struggles to watch the show nine years later because she misses it so much.
This summer Chelsee came under fire for attending a ‘Quarantine Rave’ at Daisy Nook Country Park.
She said in an Instagram post that she was sorry after joining 4,000 others at the event in Oldham.
She told her fans: “On Saturday I made a silly mistake! I now realise it was stupid and irresponsible and I am truly sorry.”
Also in June Chelsee spoke of her heartbreak after receiving racist abuse about her daughter.

She shared the sickening message on her Twitter and Instagram, explaining that she wanted to speak out following the Black Lives Matter protests.
“You know what, I get nasty messages all day mostly about me!” she wrote.
“I’m a big girl I can handle that but saying something so disgusting about my beautiful innocent baby upsets me especially when there’s nothing you can do to protect them from people’s vile words.
“I wanted to post up because of the movement that’s happening right now.
“Racism is so real but so is BLM.”
