Gregg Wallace has revealed his doctors previously warned him that if he didn’t lose weight he was set to have a heart attack.

The Masterchef host, 56, appeared on Friday’s Good Morning Britain, detailing the stark warning he was given by medical professionals before he embarked on a healthier lifestyle and lost four stone.

He explained: ‘The doctor said you have huge cholesterol here, unless you do something you’re going to have a heart attack. 

Warning: Gregg Wallace revealed on Friday’s GMB that doctors warned him he was ‘going to have a heart attack’ if he didn’t lose weight prior to shedding 4st with healthier lifestyle

‘I went on a weight loss and fitness site and in there I tell you how I went from the guy on the left hand side of the screen [to the one on the right]. I’m 56 years old what do you think guys.’

Detailing healthy ways people can lose weight, he went on to say he doesn’t ‘believe in diets’ as they’re not sustainable.

He explained: ‘Seriously for people I don’t believe in diets, I don’t believe in doing something you can’t sustain, I don’t believe in starving yourself three times a week.

‘What I believe in is making positive steps in the right direction gradually, that way you move yourself into a healthy lifestyle. Listen to this carefully, you don’t have to be uncomfortable and hungry to lose weight.’ 

Changes: He explained: 'The doctor said you have huge cholesterol here, unless you do something you're going to have a heart attack'

The MasterChef host previously admitted that his younger wife Anne-Marie Sterpini, 34, was one of the reasons behind him shedding the pounds as he didn’t want her to have a ‘fat old husband’. 

Gregg also said he wanted to be ‘fit and healthy’ for their young son Sid, 16 months, after doctors warned him he was heading for a heart attack if he didn’t change his ways. 

Speaking to Closer magazine, Gregg who also has two grown-up children with ex-wife Denise, says his youngest child gave him the ultimate motivation to overhaul his physique.

He said: ‘Having my baby boy made me want to be fit and strong. I can now go for long walks, which I wouldn’t have been able to do before.’

The TV star married wife Anne-Marie in August 2016 at a luxurious ceremony in Hever Castle in Kent.

And Gregg noted that it is the almost 20-year age difference between them which further drives him to be fit and healthy.

He continued: ‘Anne being younger than me was even more of an inspiration to be fit – you can have an old husband but she didn’t have to have a fat, old husband.’

Aside from looking good for his wife of four years, the presenter received a big wake up call when he was informed he had dangerously high cholesterol and was at risk of having a heart attack.

After dropping down to 12st, Gregg keeps up his weight loss with regular work-outs five times a week.
