This Morning viewers stunned by The Chase star Mark Labbett's dramatic weight loss | The Sun

THIS Morning viewers were impressed by The Chase star Mark 'The Beast' Labbett's dramatic weight loss when he appeared on today's show.

The top quizzer, 57, has lost a whopping 10 stone in recent years thanks to regular dog walks and running around after his young son.

It's paid dividends, and as he plugged his new book, Can You Beat The Beast?, on the ITV daytime show, viewers were distracted by his slimmer physique.

One said: "Mark Labbett looks incredible after dropping off the weight. Watching his interview, he seems like such a lovely man #thismorning."

Others commented that he no longer suits his show nickname.

Mark has spoken before about going from a size 5XL to XL.

Appearing on Loose Women, he said: "I am gradually dropping Xs off my size. I've gone from 5XL to 4XL and it looks like the next time I go shopping I'll be able to squeeze into XL underpants."

Admitting his health was a risk at his heaviest, he said: "I've lost 10 stone, I was 29 stone when I was a full time teacher in 2003 and I was in danger of high blood pressure.

"I've been around 26 stone up until lockdown, and then a few things happened quite nicely and came together and I started losing weight."

Mark caught the eye at Thursday's National Television Awards at the OVO Arena in Wembley.
