Laughs all round: Natalie, who is thrilled with her new figure, appeared to be in good spirits as she sat on the edge of the pool with little Eliza
She has succeeded in losing two stone in three months through a healthy diet and exercise regime.
And now Natalie Cassidy has decided to show off her figure for the first time by donning a flowery bikini while on holiday in Cyprus with her daughter Eliza.
The 28-year-old actress looked thrilled with her new figure as she enjoyed a dip in the pool at the exclusive Aphrodites Hills resort.
Yo-yo dieter: Natalie previously slimmed down from a size 16 to a slender size eight in 2007
Natalie, who had gone up to 12st 7lbs during her pregnancy, has regained her slim figure after giving birth to Eliza in September 2010.
She then stepped up her exercise and diet regime in February and lost a further stone and a half and had dropped to nine stone and 12lbs by last month.
The former EastEnders star has had a constant battle with her weight after dropping from a size 16 to a slender eight in 2007.
Success: Natalie's fitness DVD had huge sales
However, shortly after launching her fitness DVD, which became the fastest-selling fitness DVD ever, Natalie started to see the weight creep back on.
She also admitted using laxatives to help her lose weight and said she was 'bordering on having an eating disorder'.
But this time the actress has slimmed down healthily and safely and is hoping to maintain her slender figure for the foreseeable future.
