Gregg Wallace is a television host best known for presenting MasterChef on BBC One and Two. Tonight, Wallace and his co-presenters, Marcus Wareing and Monica Galetti, return to BBC Two for the 15th episode in the series of MasterChef: The Professionals.
In recent years, Gregg Wallace has transformed his figure, slimming down to reveal his incredible three stone weight loss results. What did he have to say about it?
The MasterChef and Eat Well for Less star, Gregg Wallace, has made no secret of his incredible three stone weight loss and he often takes to his social media accounts to share fitness snaps, from the gym or topless selfies showing off his abs.
In fact, he used to refer to himself as “just the fat, bald bloke on MasterChef who likes pudding,” but since his incredible weight loss, he has ditched the puddings and opted for a much healthier alternative. How did he lose weight?
Wallace previously revealed that his weight at the beginning of his weight loss journey was around 16 and a half stone, which was his heaviest, but over the last few years, he has managed to trim down by three stone thanks to a combination of cutting down on fatty, sugary foods and “retraining his tastebuds” in order to enjoy healthier meals.

Previously Wallace revealed on Instagram that he had dipped under 13 stone in weight.
Sharing a shirtless snap, he excitedly wrote: “Sunday morning alone in a gym. Abs and light cardio. Under 13st!!”
In one of his most recent posts shared with his 43k Instagram followers, the star posed topless in order to show off his growing muscles.
In his post he revealed he built his muscles up by working with a personal trainer, writing “Happy With This. My PT @iamdannyrai.”
Fans of the MasterChef presenter flooded his comment field to congratulate the TV star on doing so well, with comments including: “Wow Gregg is hench”, “Amazing!! Hard work pays off!” and “Looking great @greggawallace well done.”
“Congratulations on the hard work,” wrote another. “Keep up the hard work and enjoy it,” while another added, “Most impressive .”
Fellow MasterChef presenter, Marcus Wareing commented on the post too, joking, “Looking good from the back Gregg … it’s the front bit you need to worry about…”
Speaking to The Sun back in 2017, Wallace revealed that he also upturned his diet, saying that he’d gradually reduced his intake of takeaways and alcohol, and had turned to homemade versions of his favourite treats instead.
However, in addition to overhauling his diet, Wallace has also been upping his exercise regime and has been posting videos of himself on social media lifting weights.
He told the paper that he was in the gym “most mornings”, adding: “It has been a gradual lifestyle change. I now feel fit and strong because of it. But only you can move yourself into a healthier place.”
“How you feel about yourself is one of the most important things in your life. Only you can change it.”
In 2018 he told Good Morning Britain’s Ben Shepherd the secret to his transformation.
“I reduced the booze, I’ve had to give up fry ups and I exercise more,” he revealed at the time.
He confessed that at his heaviest weight he would consume takeaways regularly, which is what contributed to his steady weight gain.
