    Speaking to The Mirror of his weight gain, he said: ‘I’ve made a living by looking like a bag of spanners on TV. I’m 18 stone, I’m massive.  

    ‘I’m always on building sites. During lockdown I put on almost four stone. I’ve taken two stone off now and I’m getting fit again.’

    The TV personality explained how in the first UK lockdown, which started in March 2020, he stopped fitness training while he focused on writing.

    He also joined the legions of people in making banana bread at home, as well as gorging on pies.

    Last November, Nick was cruelly trolled as he donned a wetsuit for the DIY SOS Children In Need Special.

    When asked if the comments affected him, he said in an interview on BBC’s Morning Live: ‘No because the thing is I put on a lot of weight during the first lockdown.

    ‘I couldn’t do any training, I was doing a lot of writing, a lot of banana bread and I grew a big beard and stayed in and I wrote a lot. 

    ‘So when I came to do the shoot I thought “I’ll tidy myself up” and then actually no because so many people, not everybody, did the Joe Wicks thing, not everyone spends half their life in the gym.

    ‘Some people put on a lot of weight and I thought do you know what, first start of the show, let’s start with that straight away.’

    As many individuals have gained pounds during the pandemic, Nick encouraged viewers to focus on the importance of helping those in need, instead of his fuller figure. 

    He added on Twitter: ‘Yes we are not actors. Yes I’m large after lockdown. Yes my hair is a mess I don’t care It’s!!!! Concentrate on the story.’

    However, the star is now brushing aside the critics remarks and is getting fit again by training outside.

    As well as sorting his physical appearance, the Nick’s love life is also going well thanks to his new romance, with the telly host adding: ‘I’m in a good place.’
