“Younger looking and you’ve lost weight. Well done as looking good – not that you didn’t before,” one fan said.
Another wrote: “This is the same guy! Wow I can hardly recognise him.”
Your face looks so slim. Looking good. Will The Beast be renamed?
A third commented: “How much weight have you lost! Looking good for it.”
A fourth fan gushed: “I don’t mean to sound rude but how much weight have you lost?

“I had a brush with the virus”
He explained that he had experienced coronavirus symptoms back in February.
And since then he’s stopped going out to eat at restaurants.
“What’s happened is I had the brush with this virus, whatever it was, and since then I haven’t been going out,” he said.
Mark also revealed in 2017 that he was diagnosed with diabetes.
