Paul added: “Every morning I have a couple of eggs from the farm down the road and I make my own toast. So, it’s chucky eggs and soldiers and then in the evening I may have another slice of bread with tomato soup.”

In addition, the star sticks to “1,100 calories a day” and drinks two litres of water.
