As the latest batch of bakers started to mix their all-important ingredients, heated up their ovens and, in one baker’s case, curdled their buttercream…….twice, fans of The Great British Bake Off couldn’t help but voice their concern over one of the hosts. Matt Lucas was back alongside Noel Fielding for the popular Channel 4 show, however, it was former Little Britain stars appearance that caused more concern.

Viewers didn’t waste any time in taking to social media, not to comment on Matt Lucas’ floral shirt, instead, they noticed that the 48-year-old has lost a lot of weight since he was last on screen. Yorkshire Live reports the presenter had piled on the pounds during lockdown but appears to have reversed that trend in recent months.

The TV funnyman also revealed that he had a health scare, which gave him the kick he needed to make a healthy change.

In 2009, he told the Guardian that his doctor had warned him about ending up with “self-inflicted diabetes” if he did not shed some pounds. It would appear that in the break between 2021 and 2022’s series, Matt has taken it to heart and shed some pounds.

Bake Off fans have certainly noticed the change, with many people taking to Twitter to share their shock and Matt’s new physique.
