The Chase's Mark Labbett stuns fans with incredible weight loss in new pics

Looking fantastic!

The Chase's Mark Labbett has stunned fans by showing off his new slimmed-down look.

Mark, 54, has reportedly lost a whopping three stone, which might mean The Chase star has to change his nickname 'The Beast'.

He posted an image onto Twitter, which showed the 6ft 5in quiz master holding a gigantic pie with 'The Beast' written on it.

Looking slim and trim, he flashed a huge grin.

He joked in the image: "Only one pie for tea," followed by a sad-face emoji.

I’m waiting for my next check-up and I’m hoping the figures are going to be better.

In more pictures shared to the pub Cleveland Bay's Facebook page, Mark looked slimmer than ever.

Fans were stunned, with one person commenting: "Lost some timber there mate?"

Another said: "Looking great, Mark," while a third added: "Looking really good Beastie Boy."

According to the Daily Mail, Mark has lost three stone in six months.

Mark previously explained reasoning behind his mission to lose weight, telling Loose Women: "It was the diabetes.

"My colleague Paul Sinha also got the diagnosis and he rapidly lost two stone and he went from being diabetic to pre or non-diabetic.

"I’m waiting for my next check-up and I’m hoping the figures are going to be better. I’m still eating very well – I'm just cutting out sugar because of the Type 2 diabetes."

Last week, Mark shared a little-known fact about the hit ITV quiz show by revealing that certain answers don't make the final cut.

On Twitter, The Beast was responding to statistics shared by a fan when he explained that producers "routinely" edit out moments where both a contestant and a chaser give a wrong answer.

One of Mark's followers on Twitter wrote: "Looking at the first head-to-head question in each show, there is a little variance.

"The chaser is least likely to win when they both get the first question right. The chaser is most likely to win when they both get it wrong, although this has only happened 32 times."

He told them: "Bad data, I am afraid. We routinely cut 'double wrong answers' from the show for time purposes, so this distorts the stats."
