    His trip to the hospital comes after an appearance on Loose Women where he revealed he lost three stone after swapping fizzy drinks for water.

    Speaking to the panel, he explained: "I don't drink tea or coffee so fizzy drinks were always sort of my nemesis really and in the kitchen particularly.

    "We found that in Covid I wasn't concentrating and getting this massive sugar rush, so I just swapped to water.

    "The minute I swapped to water, it was nearly three stone," he added.
