MARTINE McCutcheon looks slimmer than ever at the moment - and she's even revealed the secrets behind her jaw-dropping weight loss.

The former EastEnders and Love Actually star has recently just launched a modelling career - and it's easy to see why.

As a testament to her stunning transformation, Martine has since been signed by the prestigious Elite, one of the world's leading model management companies.

The modelling faction has even represented supermodels such as Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell.

Over the past decade, Martine has suffered a number of hidden illnesses that have been tough to deal with, including chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and Lyme disease.

But she has found ways to manage her health, which has given her the energy to chase both her dreams.

"I think it takes a long time to work out what your own recipe is," she told Love Sunday magazine.

"It’s taken me such a long time to look through all the stuff that’s out there and just do what works for me.

"So it’s not as simple as just going on a crazy diet. I just feel like it’s really important to encourage women to just be the best version of themselves."

Martine says she doesn't follow a particular diet to stay healthy, but has a "simple trick" to stay in shape as she revealed: "The 80/20 rule is what works for me."

"For 80 per cent of my week, I will have mainly just healthy proteins, vegetables and fruit, organic and veggie juices and Flora ProActiv spread.

"And then I’ll have treats 20 per cent of the time - I’ll have that slice of pizza, chocolate or a G&T to celebrate a friend’s birthday."
