BAKE Off's Matt Lucas has revealed his incredible weight loss was because he didn't want to die young like his dad. Matt, 48, shocked Bake Off fans with his slimmed down frame when the Channel 4 show returned last night.

And in a new interview, Matt has revealed why he decided to take control of his weight once and for all. He said: "I’m 48, my dad died when he was 52, very suddenly, his dad died I think at 56, so I was looking at the law of averages here. "I was very big and I was getting bigger in the pandemic actually.

Sort of not being very active, not really going out, not seeing people, just eating a lot of roast potatoes." Matt went on to explain how he ate so many roast potatoes that it got to the point where he would make them into different shapes to give him "something to do".
