As well as regular gym sessions, the star also enlisted the help of a personal trainer.

Speaking about his fitness regime, Alan told The Sun: “I’ve had a PT (personal trainer) for about four/five months. I’ve been coming to the gym for a few years now.

“I’ve transformed a little bit myself and people have seen that. I like to come (to the gym). I have a pre-workout meal, I work out, then I have a post-workout meal or a swim and a steam.”
