Perhaps he’s been following Boris Johnson’s advice to get fit.

Hugh Bonneville is a shadow of the well-padded Earl of Grantham who feasted nightly on Mrs Patmore’s delicious dinners in Downton Abbey. 

The 56-year-old revealed his dramatic weight loss on BBC1’s The One Show on Thursday night, looking smart in a pink open-necked shirt with a drastically shorter haircut.

Another said: ‘Blimey, Hugh Bonneville is half the man he used to be.’

The actor engaged a personal trainer ten years ago after his wife Lulu Williams told him he was ‘fat as a pig’.
