You can judge pretty much anyone on how they relate to different seasons of Skins.
Do you remember fancying the wide-eyed, red-headed twins from Skins?
They couldn’t have been more different from each other on the show… and in real life!
Viewers of the Channel 4 show Body Fixers were taken aback when sassy twin Katie (Megan Prescott) revealed her new bodybuilder lifestyle!
The twins appeared on series three and four of the show where Katie (Megan) was the controlling, bossy twin who always dominated Emily (Kathryn Prescott), who was more timid and came out as a lesbian in series three.

You can just about recognise her big eyes and baby face, but Megan Prescott has been documenting her fitness journey in a new show called Dumbbells and Donuts, the Mirror reports.
The caption reads:
This documentary follows Megan Prescott (star of E4’s drama series SKINS and our short horror film Turn Around When Possible) on a 10 month personal journey as he pushes her body and mind to the limit training to compete in a UK Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation Bikini-Fitness event in May 2016.
Megan’s Instagram shows off her incredible abs and the impressive results she has worked for:
#tendaysout from the UKBFF #bikini #fitness #britishfinals I'm crapping my pants! I've worked so fucking hard on this, harder than I've ever worked for anything in my life ever! Some people might be like 'for what, to look hot in a bikini?' Well firstly I look strong as shit in a bikini, but more importantly, I did this to prove to myself, and everyone else that WHATEVER your goal is, be it a #fitnessgoal or just a general #lifegoal it will only work as much as you do for it. I am obsessed with food and I love heavy lifting and I've had to change up both routines a lot in the last year but once I've competed in the British finals in a competition I never EVER thought I had the motivation to enter, I will feel like I can do fucking anything. The moral of the story is NOT that everyone should do a fitness competition, it's that everyone has the will power to do whatEVER they set their mind to. No matter how absurd the idea may seem at the beginning! I was utterly OBSESSED with #donuts (still am tbh) but I put them down FOR A YEAR to achieve this and quite literally worked my arse off, and I thought I was a lazy shit. Therefore you can all do what you think is impossible as long as you're willing to do whatever it takes ? #makethe24hourscount #meganprescottdumbbellsanddonuts #dumbbellsanddonuts #girlswholift #WORKFORIT
Since starring in Skins, Megan also appeared in Silent Witness and Holby City, but looks to be focusing on her fitness career.
Posing lesson with @carlythornton_ifbbpro today in the neck brace… I tried! On the plus side, I think my ass has finally come through! #woopwoop think it was all the post show donuts + extra leg days with @amyruff90 that helped! ☺️? #threeweeksout #meganprescottdumbbellsanddonuts #dumbbellsanddonuts #bikini #fitness #competitor
Her sister Kathryn (who played Emily), vowed never to work with Megan again after their Skins success. It turns out the twins weren’t very close in real life but couldn’t turn down the opportunity to be on the show.
Now Kathryn has moved over the pond to America, landing a main part in MTV’s Finding Carter.
It’s safe to say they’ve gone their separate ways!
They’ve moved on a long way from their alcohol and drug fueled lifestyles…
Yay for exercise instead of tequila? (hmm).
