He has embarked on an incredible weight loss journey and has shed a staggering 10 stone over the last few years.
And The Chase star Mark Labbett put his very slimmed down frame on display as he was spotted arriving at his hotel in London this week.
Mark, 58, also known as ‘The Beast’ on the ITV show, donned a dark polo shirt and trousers as he carried a pile of clothing following his appearance on Loose Women.
During the interview, he revealed the real way he has managed to lose the weight and once again denied that he had a gastric band fitted.

‘My appetite is nothing like it once was. Get one of your doctors to check me for a gastric band scar. They won’t find it!’
Last year, Mark, who has gone from a size 5xl to 2xl, shared a picture of himself shirtless and showing off his weight loss.
The slimmed-down star revealed to The Sun that while he was tempted to go under the knife he instead decided to get fit and healthy the old fashioned way.
He said: ‘I’m not really trying to diet, I’m just being sensible, people say you’ve had the gastric sleeve or band, and I haven’t.
‘I was tempted by the gastric band but a good friend of mine who’s a GP, said my problem is sugar, I have a sweet tooth.
‘A gastric band is useless for me because sugar metabolises quite quickly, so I’ve done it the old fashion way by eating a bit less and I’ve tried to go to the gym.
A gastric band is a band that’s placed around the stomach, creating a small pouch towards the top which takes less food to fill.
He also revealed how he shed the pounds, saying he’s been ‘eating less and drinking more’ and focusing on his health.
Mark said he completely changed his diet due to battling diabetes and said that played a part of his weight loss.

Mark and his TV presenter girlfriend Hayley Palmer, who have been dating for five months, looked smitten as they left his London hotel holding hands before heading into the studios.
Hayley, who spoke about the pair’s relationship on Loose Women, admitted: ‘I don’t watch The Chase, no offence, but I’m never in at 5pm.
‘I did come and watch Beat The Chasers and he got everything right and I was like, “Wow that’s really sexy”.’
Speaking about their long distance relationship, Mark said: ‘We consult a lot with our diaries, so for example we’ve both worked out that we are in Southampton next month for a few nights, so we’ve arranged a few dates while were down there.’
Hayley added: ‘I think it’s healthy sometimes. When you meet someone, it’s too much too soon but we both really look forward to seeing each other in a few weeks.’
