Coronation Street's Claire Sweeney was flooded with supportive messages as she shared updates from her fitness journey.

The soap star has became a hit with fans with her portrayal of Cassandra Plummer on the Cobbles. The character has become a staple of the Dobbs household since she arrived last year as Tyrone's estranged mum.

Claire regularly keeps fans updated with her life away from the screen on Instagram. She has taken to the social media platform today to reveal she enjoyed an early morning gym session in the city before heading off to Manchester to film Corrie.

She said: "Finding it really hard to motivate myself these days to exercise. But feel so much better when I do. I need to get into a routine, which is hard sometimes when work, life, laziness and hormones get in the way!"

Claire is enjoying a blossoming romance with boxing legend Ricky Hatton, who was on hand to offer a message of support after the update. The former Welterweight champion said: "You go girl. xxx"

Claire sent a heartfelt message to the boxing legend this week as he travelled to America to be inducted into the boxing hall of fame. She said: "So proud of you darling.... what an honour and so deserved."
