Paddy McGuinness shocks fans with his chiselled abs!

He's been quietly working on his body for months

Paddy McGuinness has wowed fans with his new buff body after secretly hitting the gym hard!

The presenter and comedian lost two stone thanks to a lifestyle overhaul and he’s been showing off his impressive six pack.

The 45-year-old went from 14.5 stone to around 12.5 stone in only four months.

He told his followers on Instagram: “This is a before and after pic from the 4 months of good diet and training I did,” adding that he “really enjoyed” the challenge.

Totally forgot to post this last year! This is a before and after pic from the 4 months of good diet and training I did. I really enjoyed it and definitely could have got leaner but I began to feel a bit to thin. I started at 92.7kg and finished at 78.7kg. I got down from around 26% body fat to 12% and went from a 36” waist to a 32”! I’m now somewhere in between these two pics shape wise, probably more to the first one after Chrimmy! I still enjoy training but I don’t fancy stripping that much fat again. I now weigh 88.2kg with a 33” waist, I feel strong and good at that. #beforeandafter #4months #fitfriday #havingatanhelps #strong #fitat45 #noexcuses #doitforyourself #health

He explained that he has now regained around a stone because he felt a bit “too thin” – plus he let himself indulge over Christmas!

Fans were soon swooning over his physique, with one commenting: “Whit woo 💋”.

A second gushed: “From Dad bod to beach bod.. boom 💥”.

Paddy revealed he will be training in the gym with ex-cricketer Freddie Flintoff, who left a cheeky comment on his pal’s post.

Freddie joked: “Wow you have an amazing back , how do you do it , you are my hero , your dedication , motivation and all round greatness is truly inspiring and you have the sweetest cheeks too ! Can’t wait to squeeze them soon !!”

Paddy’s transformation snaps come after his wife Christine showed off her amazing figure online this week.

The 30-year-old Real Housewives of Cheshire star revealed her super-toned body on Instagram and explained that she has actually gained a stone after losing too much weight from stress last year.

She wrote on Instagram: “I’ve gained over 1 stone and feel much better for it! . I started 2018 feeling very weak, broken and worthless.. I’m leaving 2018 feeling happy, healthy and strong. Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom to get back up and realise how strong you are.”

It comes after Christine and Paddy suffered what she called a “difficult” patch in their relationship last year, after he was pictured out with Nicole Appleton in London. But the pair have since worked things out and appear happier than ever.
