We've known him as 'The Beast' for as long as he's been famous, but Mark Labbett isn't looking very beast-like anymore ...
The 56-year-old chaser - who stands very tall at 6’ 7” - has stunned fans of The Chase with a new photo in which he's looking slimmer than ever.
The TV star, who has now dropped 63kg, showed off his dramatic weight loss as he revealed the gift he was given as part of Secret Santa at the Northwich Theatre.
Labbett – who at his heaviest, in 2016, weighed 184kg – said he has lost 10 stone (63kg) in recent months by "eating less and drinking more" as he focuses on his health.
"I think the diabetes may have helped because I eat a lot less. I drink a lot more fluids," he said.
"And looking after a five-year-old during lockdown didn’t help. The amount of times I collapsed in a heap! Plus I’m so busy these days," he added.

He said his dog, a golden retriever named Baloo, has also been a huge help in finding a routine that includes regular workouts.
The father-of-one previously opened up about how his diagnosis of type 2 diabetes was the driving force behind his dramatic weight loss.
