The actor also had a lifestyle overhaul in 2014 when he was advised by doctors.

He told The Mirror at the time: “I’m a bit diabetic, so I was put on a very strict diet.

“I’ve lost between two and a half and three stone. I was big.”

He cut out sugar to shed the weight, as well as taking up yoga and swimming.

He said: “You’ve got to eat no sugar and drink hardly any alcohol… all the stuff you like. You can’t Hobnob your way through the day.”
