Mark has opened up about his weight loss on a few occasions.

Earlier this year, Mark made another shock confession about his diet changes.

Mark, best known to The Chase viewers as The Beast, admitted he couldn’t finish a Sunday roast anymore.

Considering I used to be 22 inch collar, I am a very happy bunny.

The quizzer told The Sun: “I think the major one – I’ve said various ones but they all chip in. Exercising the dog, the diabetes medication helped, running around my five/six year old during the pandemic.

“One of the major thing, I notice that people say I eat a fraction of what I normally eat. I have a standard carvery and I struggle to finish it – I eat so less but I drink so much more liquids, so my stomachs filled up.”

Back in 2020, Mark lost a huge amount of weight following a suspected case of Covid-19.

At the time, Mark explained in an interview with The Sun: “But all I can say is that for two weeks I had a complete loss of appetite, no sense of smell, a temperature, exhaustion and the worst fever of my life.

“I basically didn’t eat for two weeks. But since then the weight has continued to drop off because I have continued to eat sensibly. I knew I had to.”

The Chase airs weekdays from 5pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
