But when asked by a fan, “Hopefully that means Brad will stop the fat jokes,” he said it wasn’t a chance.

Mark replied: “The joke writers openly admit that they won’t stop with the fat shaming because it makes their job that much harder :(“

Another fan told him, “Time for the show to get new writers Beastie Boy!!”

A third tweeted: “I get the impression Brad flinches when he reads them.”

The Chase usually begins with Bradley, 61, poking fun at each of the chasers or their on-screen personalities in scripted jokes.

Discussing his weight loss yesterday, Mark explained, “Happiness is buying a pair of 42″ regular black M&S jeans…and realizing they’re a little loose :).”

He added, “The last time I was that little was in the 1990s.”

Mark previously spoke about his dramatic weight loss on an episode of Loose Women, saying he had switched from 5XL to XL.

He explained: “I lost 10 stones. I was 29 Stone when I was a full-time teacher in 2003 and I was at risk of high blood pressure.

“I was about 26 stone up until lockdown and then a couple of things happened quite well and came together and I started to lose weight.”

When asked how he managed to lose that incredible amount of weight, Mark – who has a son with ex-wife Katie – joked walking around after the toddler helped.

He said: “The most important thing is to run after a hyperactive toddler when daycare is closed. How do you keep up with them?

“I found that at the end of the evening, instead of going to the fridge for a late night meal, I could just collapse on the bed.”
