Lisa Riley has lost so much weight the wardrobe department of 'Strictly Come Dancing' are struggling to keep up.
The former 'Emmerdale' actress has gone from a size 26 to a size 20 since the beginning of the show, and her outfits are having to be taken in every week due to her decreasing size.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Practically every week there is an emergency job moments before she's due to go on air - she's like the incredible shrinking woman. We can't take in frocks fast enough."
Lisa - who is partnered with muscular dancer Robin Windsor on the show - has admitted she did not want to lose weight on the show, but is finding the gruelling rehearsal schedule means it is "falling" off her.
She said: "I've not done Strictly to lose weight but with all the training it just falls off you.
"I was rehearsing the Viennese waltz and my trousers fell down."
Lisa has impressed judges Len Goodman, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel-Horwood on the show with her abilities, regularly scoring high points.
