Mark Wright has lost a stone in weight since joining 'Strictly Come Dancing', and revealed that he now has an unexpected penchant for sequinned outfits
Mark Wright has lost a stone in weight on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 27-year-old TV and radio presenter confessed he's slimmed down since joining the BBC One dance competition in September, but revealed the pounds he has been shedding have been muscle mass and not unwanted fat.
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star said: "My body has changed but I like being trim.
"I think I have lost about a stone. A lot of it is muscle because I used to do weights but don't any more."
Despite being fitter than ever, the hunk - who is set to marry his fiancée, actress Michelle Keegan next year - admitted that he no longer feels the need to show off his physique.
He continued: "I don't feel as if I want to go out now and show off my body."
Not only has the talent contest changed Mark's figure, the star - who took part in the 2011 series of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' - revealed that he is now much more partial to sequined outfits than before joining the show.
He explained: "I have had nine costumes so far. When I started they gave me Latin trousers and a top which was covered in sequins and I was like, 'Take all that off, just dress me how I am'.
"Now I can't have a top that has not got sparkles on. I tell them to put it on everything. I am well into the Strictly spirit."
