Labbett got candid about his weight, yet again, in December 2021 when he appeared on the British lunchtime chat show Loose Women where he shared some of the secrets behind his dramatic weight loss.

The quiz wiz accreted his weight loss journey to his diet and the effects of “changing his habits”.

“I’m on a high protein diet… so eating an awful lot of meat and lean meat, and as much as I love chips and other carbs, I’m having quite a bit less than I used to,” he said.

He also told the show how looking after a toddler during lockdown has contributed to his weight-loss progress.

“The principal thing has been running around after a hyperactive three-year-old in lockdown when the nursery was shut,” Labbett explained.

“I found at the end of the evening instead of going to the fridge for late-night snacking, all I could do was collapse on the bed.”
