Hairspray star Marissa Jaret Winokur flaunts bikini body following 50-pound weight loss during coronavirus pandemic

HAIRSPRAY actress Marissa Jaret Winokur flashed her abs in a patriotic bikini top and mini skirt as she revealed her recent 50 pound weight loss.

The performer, 47, was heading to post her US Presidential Election ballot paper in the box on her road – but couldn't resist a sassy selfie before casting her vote.

New York native Marissa channelled the colors of the US flag as she threw on a blue and red check shirt, red Converse sneakers and a bopper alice band.

She rounded off her look with a black face mask with the word vote emblazoned across it – before throwing a pose perched on the vote box.

Referencing another hit musical, Hamilton, in her caption she wrote: "History has its eyes on you."

Yet it was her physical transformation which commanded most attention, after the Tony Award-winner was spurred into a lockdown of exercise and healthy eating for the sake of her health.

Marissa previously told E! Online how COVID "scares" her and that she was in the "high risk" category.

The Big Brother alum added to the website: "I started working out at home with Keith [Anthony, PT] via Zoom classes and eating healthy to have a fighting chance.

"In all honestly, I also needed something to focus on and have a goal. Six months later I have lost almost 50 pounds."

She added: "I was scared to post photos, it's really one day at a time for me when it comes to food.

"But I thought, Covid isn't over we are all sitting ducks maybe I could inspire someone ANYONE to chose to fight!"

Marissa, who confesses her asthma has also improved since making the life changes, surmised: "Getting myself as strong as possible to fight it at least makes me feel like I am doing something."

Hairspray's Tracy Turnblad has given her Instagram followers a glimpse of just what her new routine involves – including a gruelling at-home workout complete with resistance bands, balls and a TRX.

She has also been clocking up miles and personal bests on her treadmill, which she hops on whenever a bout of anxiety strikes.

Marissa has also been raiding her wardrobe to post before-and-after shits showing her wearing the same garments pre and post weight loss.

Alongside a twin-up snap showing her in a plunge neckline black wrap dress, she confessed: "Holy s**t guys I am maintaining!!

"We are going on seven months and I haven’t thrown in the towel yet!!"

She then quipped: "I admit to having thoughts about gaining it all back the next three months and coming out of this a year later the same as I went in😛."
