Indulging in some dodgy shrimp on holiday, he ended up losing a stone and a half.

He said on his podcast Sofa Cinema Club: “I was in Ko Lanta. I was sat on the beach and the waiter came over and was like, ‘What would you like?’ And I said, ‘I’ll have the prawns to start please.’

“I had avoided seafood but I was sat on the beach and I was like, ‘How can you not have seafood on the beach?’

“Well, anyway. I’m not doing that again. I’ve lost about a stone and a half.”
