Beat The Chasers' Mark Labbett is unrecognisable as he updates fans on weight loss and vows to be the ‘skinniest Chaser’

BEAT The Chasers star Mark Labbett was unrecognisable in his latest photos on Instagram as he updated fans on his weight loss.

The genius, also known as The Beast on the Bradley Walsh hosted quiz show, has vowed to be the "skinniest Chaser".

Mark, 55, previously revealed he lost an incredible two-and-a-half stone but has admitted he's determined to shed more.

In his latest post he shared a before and after photo of his face revealing his much slimmer features after another year of fighting the bulge.

He captioned the photos, crediting online meal delivery service Muscle Foods, and said: "Leaner, meaner lockdown with good folks of muscle foods. At this rate I will be the skinniest chaser :)"

In another snap the TV star sported a beard and wet hair, writing: "Time for the beard to go 🙂 #cleanshavenbeast"

Mark first revealed his dramatic new look in 2019.

His lofty 6ft 6ins height and thinner body was plain to see as he posed for pics at a pub quiz.

Mark has shed the pounds through diet and exercise.

He shared: "#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 (sic)".

Mark then mentioned former Emmerdale star Lisa Riley – who has lost 11 stone – saying: "@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 (sic)".

Congratulating him on reaching his target, Lisa wrote back: "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)".

Mark previously revealed he turned down I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2016, because he didn't think the basic diet of rice and beans would be substantial enough for him.

His weight loss started when he revealed that he was trying to make his marriage to second cousin wife Katie.

However, The Sun revealed Mark and Katie confirmed their separation after spending seven years wed — blaming their 27-year age gap and life in the Covid-19 lockdown for their troubles.

Mark told The Sun: “There was never any deceit on Katie’s part but it’s got to the point now where I realise it is better for us to go our separate ways and remain friendly.”
