He recently revealed that he has managed to get his weight below 23 stone, and he hopes to drop even more so that his BMI is less than 30.

At the start of his weight loss journey, Mark revealed that he’d been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes after eating up to 10 bars of chocolate in a day.

He said at the time: “I’m not going to complain. I’ve done the crime so I’ll do the time.”

The star also previously revealed that he was forced to turn down I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2016 because he didn’t think the basic diet of rice and beans would be substantial enough for him.
