Mark Labbett reckons if he keeps losing weight at the current rate he could become 'the skinniest chaser' - which really is the most prestigious of labels.
The 55-year-old is known as 'The Beast' on game show The Chase, but he's becoming a decreasingly sizable beast, as his latest Instagram post attests.
He previously shared an update on his weight loss in the summer, showing off a skinnier waistline but stating that he still had a 'long way to go'.
The 6ft 6ins knowledge box first embarked on his weight loss journey several years ago, revealing that the show bought him a new suit after he achieved his first target.
#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 :)- Mark Labbett (@MarkLabbett) February 20, 2018
Labbett then mentioned former Emmerdale actor Lisa Riley - who has lost 11 stone - writing: "@Reallisariley I am not at your level yet but in last six months dropped 2.5 stones, four inches off chest and six inches off stomach."
Congratulating him on the landmark, Lisa replied: "Mark that's FANTATSIC...and now you keep strong and keep going. With ZERO pressure doing it at your own pace, this is for YOU and nobody else CHAMPION, I'm crazy proud of you @MarkLabbett (sic)".

The Beast was showered with compliments by his followers after he uploaded a youthful-looking selfie last month.
One person commented: "You built a time capsule in lockdown? Look well younger here."
Another wrote: "Younger looking and you've lost weight. Well done, as you're looking good, not that you didn't before."
A third wrote: "How much weight have you lost! Looking good for it."
While another person asked: "You look great, what's your secret?"
Appearing on Loose Women in August, he said he'd been 'eating a bit more sensibly' and 'doing more exercises these days'.
Damn. Always has to be eating sensibly and exercising, doesn't it?
