GREASE Is The Word winner Susan McFadden has hired a personal trainer to fit into Sandyâ€™s famous spandex outfit in the hit West End musical.
The Irish singer and actress admitted she was terrified about wearing Sandyâ€™s skin tight costume in the final scene of Grease and has dropped a dress size since hitting the gym with her trainer Serbo.
The 25-year-old said: “There were mornings where I’d wake up and all I’d want was another hour or so in bed.
“But I knew that Serbo was waiting for me at the gym and I couldn’t let him down.
â€œWe worked out with a lot of weights, which is the best way to burn fat. I’d be there going: ‘I can’t do it, I can’t do it!’ And Serbo would tell me I could. I needed that encouragementâ€.
Susan, sister of former Westlife singer Brian McFadden, said she couldnâ€™t have got in shape on her own.
“I’ve never pushed myself physically as hard as thisâ€, she added.
â€œIt was a great luxury to have a personal trainer because Serbo pushed me further than I’d ever have pushed myself. When you go to the gym on your own you slip into a comfort zone and stop when you first feel pain. Now I keep goingâ€.
Susan can be seen playing Sandy along with Danny Bayne at the Piccadilly Theatre in London.
