In 2020, Letitia had told:

“I had quite a lot of horrible things said about me: ‘She’s too fat, the other actors complain they can’t fit on the same set with her.'”

From 2006 to 2012, she took a break from the show. And at that time, she hired a personal trainer who also had trained Charlie Brooks and Natalie Cassidy. Later, in 2008, she released a fitness DVD Letitia Dean’s Lean Routinely.

In 2009, she told Daily Record:

I’d go on fad diets like Atkins or I’d only eat eggs. The effect was great, even if my breath did smell foul.”

She added:

I’d lose a stone in a couple of weeks, but gradually I’d slip back into my old ways and put it all on again.”

Fad diets are not recommended for weight loss. One should eat healthy with calories restrictions for it.
