The TV presenter, who is 5ft 8in, hired a personal trainer and discovered a love of the gym, and has previously shared a video of himself online weightlifting a 130kg barbell.

Wallace, who competed on Strictly Come Dancing in 2014, used to weigh over 16 stone but announced in 2017 he had given up alcohol and fry-ups.

He revealed on Good Morning Britain: “Let's just say there are certain things you have to cut out. I reduced the booze, I've had to give up fry-ups and I exercise more.”

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.
