The 36-year-old said he was spurred on to overhaul his diet and fitness routine after seeing an unflattering photo of himself taken on holiday. Antony was also concerned that he would be too unfit to play with his young daughters Savannah Rose and Paloma Valentina. But he is evidently thrilled with the results, telling Lorraine Kelly: "I feel on top of the world Lorraine, I feel a different person, just half of me."

"I used to get intimidated in the gym because of how I felt. Doing stuff outside, anyone can do it, go for a walk, go for a little run. It's all about prepping your meals too," he said.

Antony is also following a strict diet, and isn't allowing himself any treats just yet, despite losing over a stone in weight. "I want to get to that stage, Lorraine, where I'm happy in myself and I can afford to have a cheat day, so to speak," he explained. "The gym has taken over my life."
