The Chase Star Mark 'The Beast' Labbett Shows Off Weight Loss At Pub Quiz
Mark Labbett - otherwise known as 'The Beast' on ITV's The Chase - has popped by a Teesside pub for a 'Celebrity Quiz' yet people can't help but notice his incredible weight loss.
The 54-year-old stopped by The Cleveland Bay in Eaglescliffe, Stockton-on-Tees, after their quiz team won the 'Great British Pub Quiz'.
According to TeessideLive, 6ft 5ins Labbett went round to each and every table helping out all of the teams at the weekly shindig - showing off his slimmer figure as he went.
He was also presented with a personalised pie from local firm Taylor's Butchers.
The pub's team, The Four Tops, were recently awarded the top spot in the Great British Pub Quiz finals - beating teams from across the country.
Peter Rafferty from The Cleveland Bay told TeessideLive: "He came up for the night, took part in our quiz night and sat at a different table for each round helping a different team. He was a great chap, everybody had their photo taken with him too. A great night was had by all."
This isn't the first time Labbett has dropped a few sizes, in fact just last year he lost an impressive four inches from his chest and six from his belly.
It was reported that the folk behind The Chase even had to buy him a new suit for the show - something he said was his 'first target' after he started cracking down on his eating habits.
#thechase lost four inches off my chest and six inches off my belly in last six months. So they have bought me a new suit for the show. First target achieved :)

Labbett is known on the show for his towering frame, but he recently admitted his signature size has also been the subject of some pretty unwelcome health diagnoses - having been told that he has diabetes.
Speaking on Loose Women, he said: "Those who've got diabetes know there's actually several indicators.
"They check for cholesterol, blood sugar, weight is one of them. And my indicators are all quite comfortably in the yellow zone with one big one in the red zone: my BMI."
He also explained that it was this diagnosis has prompted him to make the changes, adding: "In some sense it made it easier, just no arguments now. I've enjoyed being this heavy, I always used to say I've got away with it. Well, now I haven't so the weight's coming off."
Well done, Mark.
