Tina, who lost 12st after having a gastric band fitted in 2010, opted for a stylish patterned top and jeans as she carried her suitcase.
She told Closer Magazine: “I’m over the moon with the way I look. My old face looked sad and miserable, now I look healthier, sexier and prettier than ever. The last few years have been difficult and this has given me a reason to smile.’
“The last two years have been rough in every way. I attended 22 funerals and four of them were suicides. It was very traumatic.
“My little girl didn’t do well during the blocking and I felt flat and low. Paul lost his job in the army and my acting jobs dried up once the pandemic hit, we were struggling to make ends meet.”

In 2020, Tina revealed that she and her toyboy husband Paul Chase, 39, had rekindled their marriage of nine years after announcing their split in October 2019.
The teacher said she and Paul had reached a breaking point after ‘two years of hell’, which saw the blonde face legal proceedings, nearly go bankrupt and get cautioned for possessing cocaine.
But after a brief separation, the couple, who have eight-year-old daughter Flame, decided to give things another go and are now planning a second wedding.
Tina told Closer Magazine: “The love never went away, we’re working on things now, depression has added to our problems, but I’ve learned that when times are tough you have to pull together and not apart.

“Either we argued, bickered, or didn’t speak at all, I finally put Flame to bed and fell asleep next to her. Paul and I always had a great sex life, but we barely touched each other. At one point we didn’t have sex for five months.
In an interview, the thespian revealed the problems that started in her marriage when she found herself out of a job.
Meanwhile, Paul lost his job caring for violent teenagers and the couple found themselves on the brink of bankruptcy.
In 2018, Tina faced legal proceedings after she shared a Facebook post that allegedly included a picture and the new name of Jamie Bulger’s killer, Jon Venables.
A TV star has avoided jail after admitting breaching a court order protecting the identity of the killer of a two-year-old child.
After two “hellsome years”, Tina said her mental health improved when she landed a role in Channel 5’s Clink, but Paul turned to drink as he struggled to find work.
The pair spent 18 months trying to work things out, but the CBB star said she had finally come to the decision she wanted a divorce.
But after Paul got a job in the army, his mental health improved and they managed to patch things up.
