Catherine Tyldesley has urged Boris Johnson to do more to tackle the obesity crisis in the UK.

The former Coronation Street star, 37, shared her anger over the obesity crisis and how Krispy Kreme are offering free doughnuts to those in the US who had received the coronavirus vaccine.

An announcement, shared on Twitter, from the doughnut company read: “We'd like to show sweet support to those who have received the COVID-19 Vaccine. Starting today, bring your Vaccine Card to a Krispy Kreme shop and get 1 FREE Original Glazed doughnut.”

Catherine, who recently slammed trolls who accused her of editing her photos, shared her anger at the offer on her Instagram story on Tuesday 23 March.

Catherine shared a screenshot of the tweet, where Krispy Kreme offer free doughnuts to those who have received their jab in the US.

Writing above, Katherine fumed: “Beyond f**cked up. I honestly give up… next Boris will reduce fast food again.

“Knowing full well how overwhelmed obesity problems make the NHS… funny that isn’t…”

Catherine then urged Prime Minister Boris Johnson not to allow companies to do the same in the UK.


She told her 630,000 followers in a later video clip: “We all know that for years now, the UK has been in an obesity crisis, an obesity epidemic. The Government doesn’t seem to give two hoots, we also know that if you contract Covid and are obese or overweight the struggle is much worse – 85% of fatalities have been obese or overweight [people].

“But, America, if you wiggle around your vaccine passport you get a free Krispy Kreme doughnut. I swear to God, Boris if you follow suit and start reducing fast food again – knowing how several obesity affects this virus – I will lose my marbles.

“Why not reduce fruit and vegetables? Why not send out fruit and vegetables to families that can’t afford it. Do outreach work in the community, free educational programmes for families that need to know more about nutrition.

“Leaving gyms to the last minute, when statistically they’re one of the lowest places that you can catch Covid. My mind is blown!”

It comes after Catherine revealed she struggled with her weight as a teenager and lost eight stone before heading to the Corrie cobbles.

Speaking about her own struggles, she said: “I couldn't walk up the stairs without gasping for breath

“I had zero energy and my skin was terrible. Educating myself on nutrition was the best thing I ever did.”
