The Chase star Mark Labbett looks slimmer than ever after his jaw-dropping body transformation.

The 57-year-old ITV star, otherwise known as The Beast, has been open about his weight loss and how he's shed a whopping 10 stone.

He was recently spotted grabbing a snack from Greggs and a bag of sweets at a service station in the Midlands.

Mark, who is a towering 6'5" tall, was then seen squeezing back into the driver's seat of his car.

He showed off his slimmed-down figure in a black ensemble with a blazer, matching trousers and a plain t-shirt.

When he was at his heaviest in 2003, Mark weighed 29st and after being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2017 he was given a wake-up call to lose weight.

Mark started by cutting out the sugar from his diet and exercising on the regular.

He previously revealed his adorable golden retriever helped him shed 10 stone by getting him into the habit of exercising regularly and has branded him his "personal trainer".

Mark also opened up about his weight loss during an appearance on Loose Women in November last year.

He explained: "I've gradually dropped x's off my size from 5XLto 4XL it looks like when I go shopping I'll be able to squeeze into XL pants. Small things but important things.

"I'm down to 21 stone now – I was 29 stone, 2lbs at my heaviest.

"My diabetes meds help because I eat so much less. I also drink a lot more fluids."

It comes after Mark appeared to go public with his new romance last week by enjoying a date with GB News presenter Hayley Palmer on the beach in Portsmouth.

Hayley, who regularly appears on GB News, took to her Instagram Story to re-post a selfie from her beau's account.

Donning coordinating black outfits, Hayley matched her red lipstick to the border of Mark's bow-tie and handkerchief.

"Nice day at work'" he wrote while tagging her username on the social media platform.

Sources recently claimed the TV star wooed the blonde television presenter on a string of dates after being "friends for some time."

It comes after Mark split from his wife Katie in 2020 following seven years of marriage, blaming lockdown, mental health and their age difference as the causes for the end of their relationship.

In a twist in their love story, Mark and Katie are cousins – something they realised about each other three years after they tied the knot in 2014.

The Chase airs weekdays on ITV1 and ITVX at 5pm
