Claire Sweeney is likely best known for playing Lindsey Corkhill on ‘Brookside’ and for her appearance on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ but as of right now, she is more or less an unknown in the US. It seems that upon trying to break into the business in the US she was told she needed to be at least a UK size six. Instead of taking drastic measures to lose the weight Hollywood wanted her to lose, she went the other way with it. She agreed to a documentary in which she would pack on weight to show how easy it is to become overweight. She then struggled to lose the weight. I personally have never found anything wrong with women having a few extra curves, but I know people are going to look at these pictures and have all manner of rude comments. It’s kind of sad, really but I guess that’s the way the business is.
