English actor and comedian Michael Pennington, popularly known as Johnny Vegas surprised fans in July when he shared a new picture of himself on Twitter. The 47-year-old and two-time divorcee has lost three stone since he began his weight loss journey.

At his heaviest, Vegas weighed a hefty 18 stone but over the past months, he has worked very hard to keep his weight in check. A comparison between the Twitter photo above and this 2016 snapshot shows a world of difference in his appearance.


Back in 2011, the comedian spoke openly about his struggles with weight and the fear of complications in his autobiography, “Becoming Johnny Vegas”.

There was a real carelessness towards my wellbeing... Johnny had a theory that if you counted how much you were drinking, you weren't enjoying it. He never kept track but he could go on drinking for hours.

For starters, a major change in diet was necessary. This coupled with his withdrawal from alcohol was all he needed to stay on the path. Thankfully, Vegas has loads of support from his fans, some who have even chipped in ideas on how to keep weight down.

Thumbs up to Vegas. It may take a while longer to shed a bit more weight but the benefits are immense and who knows, he just might get that beach body he teased about after all.

Vegas recently announced his divorce from Maia Dunphy with whom he shares a two-year-old son. The couple did not enclose details about the split and continue to live their lives in privacy.
