Adam’s weight loss comes after he admitted he received a cruel comment about his weight.

He told Daily Mirror Newspaper: “One of the best examples of somebody being rude is when we were at the BBC Good Food show.

“This woman looks at me and says, ‘You’re fatter than you are on telly.’

As well as being into cycling, it’s well known that Adam is a keen marathon runner.

Last year Adam and some of his EastEnders co-stars, including Jake, Natalie Cassidy and Emma Barton, ran the London Marathon to raise money for charities Alzheimer’s Research UK and Alzheimer’s Society.

Like my mate Mr Wood says, ‘you’ve got to get out there.’

The actors were called Barbara’s Revolutionaries and completed the 26.2 mile run.

They raised a staggering £135,000 for the charities and with gift aid the total was more than £157,000.
