Bradley Walsh lost 1.5 stone after health fears sparked lifestyle overhaul

Bradley Walsh has lost one and a half stone after being warned by doctors he was a 'ticking time bomb' for heart disease.

The 60-year-old television star is set to appear on tomorrow night's Jonathan Ross Christmas Show alongside his son, Barney.

Earlier this year doctors told Bradley he needed to get healthier, so he began to get fit and is seeing results.

Speaking on the show alongside Michelle Keegan, Sir Mo Farah, Emily Atack and Kevin Bridges, Bradley says boxing has helped him lose weight and become more fit.

He explains in the episode airing on Christmas Eve: "I'm back boxing training now. Full time.

"I've done about a stone and a half in weight."

Comedian Kevin Bridge revealed he's also lost weight during lockdown.

He said: "I got the 5K done. I thought, I'm going to keep going. I thought I'd done maybe four times that – I looked at the watch, it was about 8K.

"I've lost a bit, put a bit on… I'm still in profit. From my heaviest to my lightest was about three stone. I've spent a stone. So I've still got 2 stone in the bank."

Bradley opened up about his health earlier this year as he said he was beginning to focus on his health more after celebrating his 60th birthday in June.

Bradley was a high risk after his father Daniel died of heart disease aged 59.

The Chase presenter told the Sun on Sunday: "I was a time bomb. I was quite lucky in regards to the calcium test but my doctor said I produce too much cholesterol.

"It's a silent killer. I thought, 'Oh crikey, I'm gonna be bang in trouble here if I don't lose the weight and start dealing with this.'

"I decided to get consciously stuck in. So, touch wood, I will be okay."

The Jonathan Ross Christmas Show airs Christmas Eve at 10pm on ITV.
