The Quiz King, who is also known as The Beast, looked thrilled as she showcased his newly slimline figure during a pub quiz at the Cleveland Bay pub in Eaglescliffe, Teesside. 

Mark, who was 27 stone at his heaviest, managed to drop the weight over the last six months after cutting sugar and running around after his young son following doctor’s orders.

6 ft 5 in Mark looked sensational as he posed away at the pub’s first celebrity edition pub quiz while his company stood on a stool to match his height.

He appeared thrilled as he was presented with a special pie, with The Beast written out on the front.  

Speaking previously about what inspired him to kick-start his weight loss journey, Mark told the Loose Women panel: ‘It was the diabetes. 

‘My colleague Paul Sinha also got the diagnosis and he rapidly lost two stone and he went from being diabetic to pre or non-diabetic.’

‘I’m waiting for my next check up and I’m hoping the figures are going to be better. I’m still eating very well – I’m just cutting out sugar because of the Type 2 diabetes.’

Mark also explained that making sure he ate breakfast was another contributing factor in his weight loss. 

‘The big secret, which somebody told me is the thing that all people who are very, very overweight have in common, is that they don’t eat breakfast’ – before he noted that he now makes time to sit with his family to enjoy his first meal of the day.

He also contributed running around after his two-year-old son as another source of his weight loss.
