The Chase star Mark Labbett left fans stunned after uploading a photo of himself which showcased his incredible transformation.
Best known as The Beast on the ITV quiz show, the 57-year-old has been open about his weight loss journey after shedding 10 stone when he decided to prioritise his health after being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.
The quizmaster enlisted a personal trainer to aid with his transformation, resulting in him losing 63kg over a year.
In his latest Twitter post, Mark is pictured holding the board game version of Pointless, while donning a dark T-shirt and trousers.
The TV personality was also rocking some serious eyeliner as the snap was taken behind the scenes at his Jack and the Beanstalk pantomime
‘This was my secret Santa at the Northwich Panto. I suspect Richard Osman.’
Fans were in awe of the star’s evident weight loss, with one writing: ‘Is it bad I thought this was a throwback pic of you as a teen!? You’re looking way younger, Beastie!!!’
‘You look fantastic, well done with the weight loss!! Can’t really call you the beast anymore xx,’ another added.
‘Can’t believe how trim you are. Looking fabulous Mark,’ an impressed fan echoed.
Chatting with the Loose Women panel in March last year, Mark credited dropping a staggering five trouser sizes to a low sugar and carb diet and ‘running after a hyperactive toddler.’
He said: ‘I’m not a drinker, but sugar has always been my downfall. A good friend of mine who had the gastric band said it won’t do any good for me as I get all my calories by sugar, and it’s too easy to digest.’
Mark was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2017, sparking him to start a health kick despite never having a ‘diabetic episode’.
‘I’ve got skin that doesn’t heal properly in my lower legs. A nurse looked at me and she asked, “Are you sure you’re not diabetic?” he said.
‘They took a test and she said, “Yes, you’re diabetic.”’
He’s since dropped from 29 stone down to 19 stone.
