And he told The Sun in 2017: “I’m a huge fan of curries, chillies and stews and it is still possible to lose weight and eat hearty meals.

“Think about cooking with meats such as chicken and pork – all the things that don’t have much fat.

“Use lean mince to make chillies, fill up with tasty stews stuffed full of healthy, low-calorie veg.”

Wallace met his wife Anne-Marie, 32, on Twitter in 2013 and they married in 2016.
