Matt Lucas has revealed the results of his recent weight loss after telling fans he’s gained weight while “eating most of the pie” at the Great British Bake Off.

The comedian and TV star, 48, went to Notting Hill for dinner with a friend this week, wearing a white T-shirt, chinos, green hoodie and baseball cap for the casual outing.

The pair enjoyed a meal at an Italian restaurant in the area before taking a walk together and stopping to look in a shop window.

Matt recently opened up about his health and fitness overhaul after people noticed he looked slimmer than before.

Lord Alan Sugar tweeted: “Wow @RealMattLucas has lost so much weight,” after which the Little Britain star revealed he’s made changes after gaining weight hosting the Great British Bake Off.

He replied: “Thank you. Basically I was pretty big and then I went into a big white tent and ate most of the cake inside.

“Then I saw myself on TV and I was like, ‘I can hardly fit on the screen,’ and I realized it was time to do something about it.”

Proving it’s all about balance and that you don’t deprive yourself of the things you enjoy, he added: “That means I just had a Pot Noodle.”

Revealing earlier this year that he was “slightly ashamed” after losing weight, Matt tweeted at the time: “Call the lady who stopped me at football today to ask why I lost weight and to let me know that I look much older.

“For the first time in my life I think I only shamed myself thinly.”

Matt also revealed at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic in April 2020 that he wanted to “get fitter” during quarantine, revealing to Lorraine at the time: “The only thing I have to do is get fitter, I have it Put on a little weight, that’s my next challenge, move a little more.

“I might have to make a game out of it when I go to a practice to avoid people. I don’t have a garden so I have to find a way to do that.’
