Former EastEnders favourite Martine McCutcheon showcased the fruits of her weight loss journey on Friday as she decorated her stunning kitchen with husband Jack McManus.
The 46-year-old cut a slender figure as she donned a dark leather mini-skirt with a white t-shirt as the pair got to work on painting the walls just a day before their son Rafferty's eighth birthday.
In a video shared to Martine's Instagram story, the pair exchanged banter as the actress lamented Jack's 'genius' short-notice idea in a sarcastic tone.

As Martine applied a fresh coat, Jack joked: "Come on darling, it's got to be done by six o'clock, what do you reckon?"
Affording a wry smile, Martine quipped in response: "Don't even go there, the things you do to me.
"At least my lifestyle followers will see that I am doing it myself – I may not be as good as them but I am trying."
In a lengthy post on her account, meanwhile, Martine joked to her 550,000 followers about Jack's 'destruction' and gave more details about their boy's celebrations.
"As usual @jackmcmanus1 has decided to bite off more than he can chew by making the decision to paint the whole kitchen and the cupboards by tonight – WTF?!" she said.
"He’s left a mass of destruction in his wake and I’m meant to be the little tidy up fairy trying to keep things clean and neat! We’ve got a fab balloon company coming later (will share more) so the house can’t possible stay like this.
"But I’ve got my music on, sleeves rolled up ready to be handy man, balloon helper, painter, decorator, DJ, present wrapper etc… The things you do for your kids! I think I may need that Dr Pepper today!

"He’s got his footie in the morning and then he’s having a “yes” day (like the film… so god help us) and then on Sunday, an outside army style laser tag party with the kids from school and the decor theme is anything TOM GATES."
Martine met singer Jack in 2009 and the pair married at Lake Como, Italy three years later before Rafferty was born in 2015.
Her fellow mums were quick to praise her work and took the time to wish Rafferty many happy returns, with one commenting: "Sounds just like my house and family hrs before a get together. Us mums always pull it off in the end tho don’t we!!!"
Another wrote: "Awww Martine Happy 8th birthday to Rafferty…cool party idea. I love birthdays for my Poppy. Being an older mum I didn't think I would have the pleasure so i always go over the top lol."
