"What has happened to your body?"
Krishnan Guru-Murthy opened up about his weight loss journey since being on Strictly Come Dancing.
The Channel 4 newsreader and his dance partner Lauren Oakley were guests on ITV’s Lorraine to discuss their upcoming performance.
But when stand-in host Ranvir Singh commented on Krishnan’s jacket being a little big for him, he revealed how much weight he had lost.
Ranvir noted: “Can I just say, that jacket looks very loose on you.”
Krishnan joked: “Yeah well everything is loose on me.”
Krishnan cringed as he was asked by Ranvir to show off his weight loss transformation.
After initially refusing to stand up, Ranvir revealed to the camera that his suit jacket had to be pinned at the back for it to be able to fit him nicely.
Ranvir exclaimed: “This is how much weight this man has lost, he has got safety pins! It doesn’t fit you anymore!
“What has happened to your body?”
He eventually jumped up to reveal his jacket.
The journalist then leaned back and pulled out his belt, pointing out that he had gone down seven notches thanks to the BBC show’s gruelling rehearsals.
Stating that it was a means to track his progress, Krishnan joked:
“Oh dear you weren’t supposed to see that. I have got this belt that was normally there, and is now there.
“I am keeping this belt forever! It has seven holes.”
Ranvir then showed before and after pictures of Krishnan which he joked was a “bit mean” as he then explained the weight loss had been “good” for his health.
It comes as Krishnan Guru-Murthy previously expressed his concerns about “dropping dead” on the dance floor due to “various health issues”.
The newsreader has a genetic heart condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
This prompted doctors to warn Krishnan about getting on the dancefloor.
The condition has already killed two of his cousins.
Krishnan’s cardiologist told him he needs to keep his heart rate below 140 otherwise he risks death.
He said: “The basic advice is, I’ve got to keep my heart out of the red zone, which is the last 15 per cent of your heart rate.
“So, I’ve got to keep my heart rate below about 140, and I don’t know whether you can do that or not, in a 90-second very fast dance.
“My cardiologist basically said, ‘I can’t give you a hundred per cent guarantee that you won’t drop dead, but you’ll be fine’.”
