We've known him as 'The Beast' for as long as he's been famous, but it looks like Mark Labbett isn't going to be a beast for too much longer.

Speaking on the UK chat show, Loose Women, Mark opened up about how his diagnosis of type 2 diabetes was the driving force behind his dramatic weight loss. 

"My colleague Paul Sinha also got a diagnosis, and he rapidly lost 2 stone, and he went from being diabetic to non-diabetic," Mark said.

He spoke about how he's hoping to also have lost enough weight to get out of the red zone: "I'm waiting to have my next checkup and I'm hoping that the figures are going to be better. I know that even if I'm lucky enough to now push myself to non-diabetic I've got to treat myself as if I'm diabetic from now on."

Mark also revealed that there is another heartwarming reason behind it: "I want to be around long enough to see the little man get the university degree."

Earlier on in the interview, Mark spoke about how he has lost about 20 kgs in total and how cutting out sugar along with chasing an active two-year-old around is more than enough for him.

Good on you Mark!
