Lucy-Jo Hudson turns to exercise for broken heart
Lucy-Jo Hudson is relying on exercise to mend her broken heart.
The 32-year-old actress has hired a personal trainer to help her focus on her fitness and well-being following her shocking split from her husband Alan Halsall, 33, last month.
A source said: "She was scared her diet and fitness might slip after the breakdown of her marriage and decided to enlist the help of a personal trainer to keep her mind and body healthy.
"Lucy-Jo is already doing a lot better and she's looking and feeling great. The workouts really help to keep her focused as she juggles her work and life as a mum."
The former couple, who had been together over a decade, sent shock waves through the soap world just over four weeks ago when they announced they had decided to go their separate ways following six years of marriage.
The duo first struck up a relationship in 2006 after meeting on the set of 'Coronation Street' in 2005 when Alan was playing lovable mechanic Tyrone Dobbs - a role he still portrays on the show - while Lucy starred as Katy Harris.
The brunette beauty quit the soap in late 2005 but is now starring in the mid-afternoon medical drama 'Doctors'.
The former lovers have two-year-old daughter Sienna together.
