Judge Robert Rinder says he’s ‘two-stone’ overweight according to the NHS and has taken drastic action to shed the pounds.
According to the NHS website, I’m 2 stone over my recommended weight. I needed a bit of a push so have entered into a contest with Alan Carr. From tonight we have 2 months to get as close as possible to our ‘healthy’ BMIs. Furthest away has to buy the other a cheeseburger. pic.twitter.com/7zZ62Diq6H

I don’t know if you know, but next month is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and I’m proud patron of Neuroblastoma Uk and you can buy these snazzy gold ribbons, pins and bracelets from their website www.neuroblastoma.org.uk to help their fight. Be warned they also have t-shirts coming out which I WILL be modelling in a post very soon. If you can help (and I know it’s tough at the moment!!) we would be so grateful ❤️ #goingforgold #CCAM @neuroblastomaUK
Will Alan take the challenge?
Last month Alan, 44, stunned fans on Instagram with his own weight loss.
“I have been on a weird diet of 1,000 calories,” he told the newspaper.
“Adele looks great and she has inspired me. She is looking great. I love Adele.”
The Hello singer, 32, credited her recent weight loss and healthier lifestyle to reading ‘profound’ self-help book, ‘Untamed, Stop pleasing, Start Living’ by Glennon Doyle.
The star claimed the book saved her from being “stressed and disheveled”.
