Lisa Riley unrecognisable as she announces filming project away from Emmerdale

Lisa Riley has taken to Instagram to discuss her upcoming career plans, describing them as a "REALLY good giggle."

The Emmerdale actress teased a new project in the pipeline, but didn't confirm what it could be, aside from the fact she was travelling down south to film something different to the soap.

She uploaded a picture to Instagram of herself in a pair of smart black glasses, her long dark hair worn down, with a big smile on her face.

The actress wore a light make up look, with a soft base, black eyeliner and mascara, finished off with a sweep of pale pink shimmery lipstick.

The actress is almost unrecognisable from her past appearance, after she lost half her body weight.

She slimmed down from a size 30 to a size 14, after making the decision in 2016 that she wanted to take care of her health.

After cutting out alcohol and junk food and working out more, Lisa shed a huge 12 stone, including 1.5 stone of excess skin.

She captioned the picture: "Just finished filming a lovely day in studio at emmerdale now on my way in the car, down south to film something else, for the day…..should be a REALLY good giggle, I’m looking forward for it."

Her followers left supportive messages in the comment section, with one saying: "You're A Little Ray Of Sunshine."

A second wrote: "You look stunning, Lisa X," and a third typing: "You look gorgeous xxxx."
