‘The Beast’, Mark Labbett, discusses his weight loss

Mark Labbett looked seriously slimmed down as he arrived at his London hotel this week.

The 58-year-old star, who’d been in the capital for an appearance on an episode of Loose Women, flashed a broad grin as he carried a huge pile of clothes on his way back after the show.

Donning a chic all black outfit, consisting of a polo neck top and fitted trousers, The Chase star was on top form.

He also unveiled the secrets to his weight loss during his Loose Women interview, vowing he’d never had a gastric band fitted.

“I think one of the pluses of having what may or may not have been Covid a few times is that I just lost my appetite,” Mark elaborated.

“‘My appetite is nothing like it once was,” he mused, before challenging: “Get one of your doctors to check me for a gastric band scar. They won’t find it!”

He had previously admitted he’d been tempted by the procedure, before hearing that if he could cut his sugar intake, he wouldn’t need to resort to surgery.

“A good friend of mine who’s a GP, said my problem is sugar, I have a sweet tooth,” he previously told The Sun.

“A gastric band is useless for me because sugar metabolises quite quickly, so I’ve [lost weight] the old fashioned way [instead] by eating a bit less and I’ve tried to go to the gym.”

Mark has even shared that he struggles to finish a roast dinner, which he would have devoured easily before.

His diabetes diagnosis also prompted him to take decisive action, and the weight dropped off, with him revealing in January that he’d dropped from size 5XL to size 2XL.

Meanwhile, his clothes size has shrunk even further in the months since.

Mark also seems to be enjoying his romantic life, after his relationship with fellow TV personality Hayley Palmer has gone from strength to strength this year.

Hayley was right by his side last month as he attended the Reality TV Awards to proudly pick up his gong for Best Game Show.

The pair had partied at a table with Mark’s Chase co-star Anne Hegerty, while they also posed for photos beside each other with the caption: “Beauty and the Beast arrived” in reference to the TV fave’s nickname.

Hayley is the presenter and producer of two Sky TV music shows, At Home With Hayley and Memory Lane 80s, while she also recently hosted the Entertainment segment on GB News.

However, it was her YouTube show, Saturday Night with Hayley Palmer, that first brought her and Mark together – and they’ve seemed inseparable ever since.

Yet she made the surprise admission on Loose Women that she didn’t watch the show that had brought her new partner nationwide fame.

“I don’t watch The Chase, no offence, but I’m never in at 5pm,” she candidly revealed.

However, she conceded: “I did come and watch Beat The Chasers and he got everything right and I was like, ‘Wow that’s really sexy.'”
