Stunning Martine McCutcheon looks slimmer than ever as she heads off to Queen's Jubilee party in floaty yellow dress
MARTINE McCutcheon wowed in a summery yellow dress fit for a queen as she prepared to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.
The 46-year-old actress looked great in the stylish yellow number from Wallis and a pair of silver heels that revealed her foot tattoo.
Martine finished her look with a pair of large black shades befitting of a glam celeb.
She wrote on Instagram: "With filming over, I’m SO looking forward to celebrating everything Jubilee – and part of that is dressing up, right? Come rain or shine I will be more than ready for a royal tea party in these beautiful dresses from."
The outing comes just days after the mum-of-one revealed her crippling addiction to Diet Coke that saw her guzzling eight cans a day.
Martine confessed: “I don’t really drink tea or coffee so the caffeine in it was my thing.

“I’d wake up then be walking my seven-year-old into the playground with a can of Diet Coke and the mothers looked at me disgusted, absolutely disgusted — ‘She’s not got her posh coffee cup, she’s rocked up with a Diet Coke’.
“I was drinking it at that time of day and even before I went to bed. I always had a can next to me. I loved that little buzz it gave me.”
The former EastEnders actress managed to kick her habit and has, until recently, been living a low-key life in Surrey with her husband Jack McManus, 37, and son Rafferty, seven.
She turned her back on fame after her wedding to songwriter Jack in 2012 but is now starting to “fall in love with the industry again”.

Last year she impressed fans of The Masked Singer, performing as Swan, and she completed a live tour of the ITV show last month.
Martine, who suffered miscarriages in her thirties before having Rafferty, said: “I took time out of the industry because my priority was to become a mother. It took a lot longer than I thought . . . I had a lot of problems keeping babies.
CONFIDENCE AT AN ALL-TIME LOW
“The fluffy world of t*ts and teeth didn’t matter any more. There was a far bigger lesson to be learned and a far bigger picture to be looked at.”
She added: “Now my son is seven I’m still a bit obsessed with being a mum. I still begrudge anything that takes me away from him for longer than a few hours because I’m so in love with him.
“I’m doing a movie, playing the very small part of an ex-ballerina, with John Cleese in Budapest in Hungary this year. I am starting to look at other things too.”

Martine revealed she is considering doing a one-woman stage show.
She is known to millions for her role as Downing Street PA Natalie in the 2003 festive movie favourite Love Actually opposite Huge Grant’s Prime Minister.
The role came when Martine was at her “lowest” after a difficult run in a West End production of the musical My Fair Lady.
She had chronic fatigue syndrome ME, which led her to be admitted to intensive care and she was forced to withdraw from the starring role of Eliza Doolittle.

Martine told Spotify’s Brydon & podcast, hosted by actor and comedian Rob Brydon, of getting the movie offer: “It was just so confidence-boosting when my confidence was at an all-time low.
“I can still see in the film some of my vulnerability, which works — it was very much the essence of who I was at the time.”
