EastEnders star Melissa Suffield celebrates her ‘wobbly body’ as she dances in her lingerie: ‘It’s totally normal’
Former EastEnders star Melissa Suffield was praised by fans as she showcased her real, unfiltered body in her most recent Instagram post on Friday.
The 30-year-old, whose Instagram handle is the.confidentmama, uploaded a video of her dancing in her lingerie as she celebrated her ‘wobbly body’.
The actress looked incredible in a turquoise lingerie set as she beamed and shook her body to the music.
She captioned the post: ’13 seconds of a body wobbling, to remind you that a wobbly body is totally NORMAL.’
Melissa gave birth to her son River in March 2020 and has since devoted her Instagram page to encouraging women to celebrate their bodies and help them feel confident.

She continued the caption: ‘We spend so long picking ourselves apart, and it feels so *lonely*, we start to think we’re the only ones who look a certain way. In fact, there’s SO many other bodies like ours- we’re actually pretty damn ordinary!
‘So, this is 13 seconds to remind you just how normal your body is. And how WONDERFUL that is.
‘What’s your favourite wobbly bit? Let’s hear ’em! And then let’s CELEBRATE them’.
The EastEnders star, who played Lucy Beale on the BBC soap, was praised by fans who rushed to comment on Melissa’s post.
One woman joked: ‘I don’t know a body that doesn’t jiggle like a Christmas bauble.’
Another wrote: ‘This is excellent . Lets normalises that our body’s can jiggle and still be hottttttt’.
A third chimed ‘There isn’t a single part of my body that doesn’t jiggle. Actually I tell a lie, my toes don’t, my jiggles remind me of the amazing process my body made to grow my 3 beautiful boys’.
Last month Melissa hit back at ‘bounce back’ culture as she embraced her ‘real body’ in another social media post.

The actress posed in a gorgeous rose-print matching lingerie set as she captioned the clip: ‘Want to know what makes me mad? Bounce back culture.’
The star went on to discuss the pressure put on mothers after they give birth to snap back into their pre-baby body, despite the fact their time both mentally and physically is completely consumed with looking after a human being.
She wrote: ‘New mums already have a LOT of pressure. They’re keeping this new ACTUAL person alive, learning how to do it, trying to heal from birth, being bombarded with ads for *the* dream product that they probably don’t need, worried about why their baby isn’t sleeping through yet because they saw a £500 course that promised them the solution- the LAST thing they need to be worrying about is bouncing back to their pre baby body.’
