Former EastEnders sensation Tamzin Outhwaite, 49, has been living at home with her boyfriend Tom Child, 29, and her two daughters Marnie, eight, and Florence, 12, who she shares with ex-husband Tom Ellis, 41, during lockdown. The BBC star has now said she has put on "so much" weight over the past few months as she felt "frustrated" at home.

Tamzin admitted when the coronavirus pandemic first struck, she and Tom ate anything they could get from the shops at the time.

She divulged: "It has been so up and down and honestly, I put on so much weight at the start of lockdown that the time came to overhaul my body.

"I think my partner, Tom, and I just ate and drank anything we could get our hands on when the pandemic struck."

Tamzin also revealed having to homeschool her daughters during lockdown really got to her, resulting in frustrations between the four of them.

"I love my daughters so much but when it came to homeschooling them we got so frustrated with each other," she added.

"Tom would have to take over as he was a much more calming influence on them."

Tamzin went on to explain further: "I ate because I was frustrated, missing my work so much and a bit shocked by covid."

Despite this, the former Albert Square actress said she now feels a lot better having cut some food and drink out of her diet recently.
