The Chase star Mark Labbett stuns fans with staggering weight loss in new photo

Fans were left stunned by a new photo of the chaser

Fans of The Chase have been left stunned by the weight loss of Mark Labbett, as he posed up for a picture with one of his co-stars.

Labbett - known as 'The Beast' on the ITV hit game show - has dropped a whopping 10 stone in recent years.

Viewers got a look at his progress when fellow chaser Shaun Wallace, aka 'The Dark Destroyer', shared a snap to Twitter.

Mark Labett's weight in a recent snap was commented on.

In the picture, the two brainy pals can be seen smiling at the camera.

Labbett looked slimmer than ever before as he wore a black suit and blue shirt.

Alongside the picture, Wallace wrote: "If you think I'm big...this guy's a beast.

"Have a beautiful day but be careful if you are out in Storm Babet.

"I'm back in the studio today...just another day at the office."

Fans were quick to comment on Labbett's weight loss and flocked to the post to share their reaction.

"Jesus he looks totally different.. huge congratulations on the weight loss Mark, very well done indeed", gushed one person.

Another said: "He has lost so much weight though! Amazing!"

At his heaviest, Labbett weighed 29 stone but decided to slim down after receiving a type 2 diabetes diagnosis.

Speaking to The Sun in 2020, the 48-year-old said: "I got suspected Covid at the end of February, and got sent home from work, for the first time in 15 years, on Wednesday 27th. ITV were brilliant and took no chances.

"Because the testing capacity was so limited then, I never formally got a test but all I can say is that for two weeks I had complete loss of appetite, no sense of smell, a temperature, exhaustion and the worst fever of my life.

Mark Labbett has been open about his weight loss journey.

"I basically didn't eat for two weeks but since then the weight has continued to drop off because I have continued to eat sensibly. I knew I had to.

"I am still losing weight and beginning to notice the difference in photos which, I can assure you, are not Photoshopped!"

He's also credited his dog with helping him keep fit.

Speaking on ITV's The Pet Show, the TV personality said: "My wife promised me that when we first got him she would take care of everything - feeding him, walking him and so on,

"That lasted about two weeks before she decided 'Actually Mark, look at your belly - you need the exercise!'

"I was walking him around the fields, taking me places... I think he's helped a lot, simply because I'm doing more activity."
