In the interview on Monday, he said that it wasn't until the pandemic that he really started to lose weight.

He added: "Several factors came together nicely and the weight has just fallen off. The principal thing has been running after a hyperactive three-year-old in lockdown when the nurseries were shut. Instead of going to the fridge for a bit of late-night snacking all I could do was just collapse on a heap on the bed."

The Beast reveals the two foods he cut back on to lose 10 pounds

The 57-year-old has since revealed the two foods he cut back on to make this remarkable weight loss journey.

In the end, it came down to cutting back on two major food groups: Sugar and carbs.

When seeking weight loss surgery, Mark was warned by doctors that a gastric band could be dangerous for him due to the way his body processes sugar.

His 2016 diagnosis of type 2 diabetes also prompted him to act and make serious lifestyle changes to protect his health.

Mark reached his peak weight in 2003 when he weighed 29 stone but is now at his lightest in roughly 30 years.

In 2006, the future Chaser appeared on Who Wants to be a Millionaire but was unsuccessful in obtaining the ultimate prize.

The pub quiz wiz walked away with £32,000 after he incorrectly answered his £64,000 question.

He was quizzed on things ranging from types of biscuits to the star who played Long John Silver in the Muppet Treasure Island Island movie.

His final question was: "The best-selling novel 'Miss Smilla's Feeling For Snow' is set chiefly in which country?"

He answered Canada but the correct answer was Denmark.
