Gok Wan, Simon Cowell and Gordon Ramsay among celebs who are half the men they used to be thanks to dramatic weight loss

GOK Wan surprised fans this week after showing off his weight loss after taking up running in lockdown.

But he’s not the only male star to have shed the pounds and strive for a healthier lifestyle…

Gok Wan

This Morning’s Gok stunned followers after sharing a snap of his slimmer appearance.

Gok has remained on top of his fitness by enjoying regular jogs amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The style guru posed for a mirror selfie, with the caption: "Will I hit 6k today! Did I have a few sherries last night? Have I got this?"

The TV star, who is well-known for hosting shows including How to Look Good Naked, previously spoke about his struggles with his weight and his heartbreaking recollection of his battle with an eating disorder.

He added: "Thankfully, over time I got better. I'm telling you this because if we all talk more, listen more, and admit at time we are allowed to be weak then maybe one day there will be one less young person looking at their reflection wanting to be anyone other than themselves."

Simon Cowell

Simon recently shed 4st (60lbs) after embarking on a health and fitness regime.

He used to binge on sausage rolls, hamburgers and his favourite jam tarts made by his personal chefs.

But since ditching his unhealthy lifestyle he reveals he has managed to drop four waist sizes.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Simon said: “The most dramatic period was the first month where most of the weight comes off and you look at yourself and think ‘wow’."

Gordon Ramsay

A few years ago, Gordon Ramsay revealed he shed a whopping four stone over fears his wife would leave him.

The famous chef revealed despite winning his third Michelin star, his long working hours meant he never ate properly and snacked a lot instead.

Partner Tana, with whom he has five children, told him that he needed to take care of himself better or risk losing her.

The TV star told The Times in an interview: "Tana was not impressed with the way I was.

"I was overweight, 18 stone. I looked like a sack of s***. I look at the pictures and think, 'How did Tana stay around?'”

Gordon undertakes gruelling workouts three times a week with his personal trainer to get his body in tip top condition.

And he has also adjusted his working lifestyle to adapt to his new health kick.

Gordon now no longer runs his own kitchen on a daily basis, but travels the world checking in on the restaurants which function under his name.

Ricky Wilson

In the lead-up to his debut on The Voice Ricky shed 2st by cutting out junk food and running 10 miles a day.

The Kaiser Chiefs frontman now tots up five miles three times a week or more, but isn’t keen to shout about his fitness regime.

He joked to Fabulous: “I don’t really want to celebrate that because you don’t really want to remind people that you have to go running to not be 16st.

“Because I would be. And I plan on being it again one day. I can’t wait!”

Craig David

Craig David has admitted his fitness regime went too far when he "trained like crazy" for his ripped body to compensate for being "a fat kid growing up".

The RnB singer opened up on his childhood body battles and revealed even now "there's always a fat kid inside" craving plates packed with fried chicken.

Since rocketing to fame, he upped his training and worked hard to lose his adolescent weight – yet found his fixation on fitness came at a price and he tipped the other end of the spectrum, going "too far" with his new, clean lifestyle.

Speaking to Australian show Sunrise, Craig said he has now found a happy medium.

He revealed: "There was a time when I was like, just training like crazy, but then I realised that actually, having been an overweight kid, I just wanted to do the opposite but then finding balance was key.

“Because now, I just want to be healthy, I like to keep myself in condition cause I want to go on stage and give a 110 percent and that's my reasons for it as opposed to, ‘let me get a summer sick pack because I need to impress.’”

Chris Moyles

Last year, Chris Moyles stunned fans with a dramatic new look after his five-stone weight loss.

The Radio X presenter has been on a major health kick over the past few years since leaving his job on BBC Radio 1 breakfast show in 2012.

Chris Moyles has attributed his new svelte frame to a combination of eating healthily, regular exercise and a personal trainer.

The radio DJ was a fan of junk food but has swapped his calorific diet for vegetables, fruit, grains and protein.

His current diet includes just 2,000 calories per day – 500 less than the recommended daily amount.

He is reported to have been doing cardio three times a week, using free weights and running.

Calvin Harris

DJ Calvin Harris shot to fame in 2007 as a pale, slim brunette – but fast-forward a few years and he landed a coveted Armani campaign showing off his muscley physique.

Speaking of keeping fit when touring, he said: “Staying in a gym routine while on the road is tricky, but as long as you don't drink, eat well, sleep enough and take one of those mad little ab rollers with u everywhere you'll be good.”

He previously shared how his daily routine involves eggs for breakfast ('egg-white omelette with smoked salmon and spinach for protein, fibre and omega-3') and the gym before hitting the studio.
