The This Country star went on a keto diet last year to slim down, especially after the lockdown. Keto dieting involves eating foods that are low-carb and high-fat.

Interview With Grazia Magazine

In an interview with Grazia Magazine in October 2022, she discussed her transformation and revealed why she made that decision.

"I'm so for body positivity but when I was at my biggest I was at my most miserable and I had a massive food addiction. I wasn't healthy. I couldn't breathe when I was walking up the stairs. I was so unhappy."

She's Still Funny

She added that she'd gotten disturbing messages asking why she lost weight and how she was not funny anymore.

"And I've had some messages like, "Well, now you've lost the weight, you're not funny anymore. What the f"k? Why do women have to be f king fat to be funny? That makes me so angry. I champion anybody. I think everybody should be happy with their body. But I wasn't."

The 36-year-old split from her long-term partner Will Weston in July 2021, citing that there's no real love between them.

The talent blamed their divorce on irreconcilable differences, including her different sense of humor from her husband.

"I was with a man, as wonderful as he is, who didn't find This Country funny. It wasn't his sense of humor. 'It's like, how can I possibly be with a man who doesn't find my comedy funny? That's f**king mad! And he deserves better than me because he has things she needs that I can't give him."

Lockdown Had A Role To Play

The actress stressed that the Covid-19 lockdown had a role to play in the breakdown of their marriage, and she felt the need to be by herself following the stress of the pandemic on her and everyone.

"I had tears streaming down my cheeks. I told my husband — well, my then-husband — 'I've got to go outside, just walk, on my own."

She added that she also read a publication by a woman in her seventies who had felt trapped in her marriage. She related to that and then began considering divorce.
