Mark then mentioned former Emmerdale star Lisa Riley – who has lost 11 stone – saying: “@Reallisariley I am not at your level yet but in last six months dropped 2.5 stones, four inches off chest and six inches off stomach (sic)”.
Congratulating him on reaching his target, Lisa wrote back: “Mark that’s FANTATSIC…and now you keep strong and keep going. With ZERO pressure doing it at your own pace, this is for YOU and nobody else CHAMPION, I’m crazy proud of you @MarkLabbett (sic)”.
Mark previously revealed he turned down I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2016, because he didn’t think the basic diet of rice and beans would be substantial enough for him.
