Jason Manford loses 2 stone in health kick as he celebrates 40th birthday

Jason Manford revealed he has shed two stone as part of his health drive as he celebrated turning 40.

The comedian has been noting down his weight since the start of 2021 to track his progress, sharing his results on Instagram.

The presenter received support from his famous friends including Ore Oduba and John Bishop who congratulated him on how far he has come.

After ditching his lifestyle change for a week so he can celebrate his birthday in style (understandable), Jason added he is back on the wagon and ready to lose more weight.

In a short clip posted on social media, he scrolled through the chart where he has been noting down his weight each day, starting at 17 stone in January to 15 stone five months later.

The TV star said: ‘I’ve logged my weight every day this year, apart from this last week (my 40th birthday week).


‘So 5 points for the person who guesses what my weight is gonna be tomorrow morning after a couple of parties and a couple of days away with the kids glamping!’

Strictly Come Dancing star Ore replied: ‘Brother!!! Blahdy ‘ell!!! So proud… that’s some well deserved partying right there!!!’

‘Well done fella,’ comedian John said, adding clapping emoji.

Actor Max Beesley said Jason had made ‘terrific’ progress adding ‘I’m thinking you’re buzzing so much from the fat loss that you’re will carry on regardless during the b day week. Safe average is 2-3 lbs a week with food plan and low cardio ( more effective at burning fat than high octane cardio levels) so you’ve done that Hanushka right. Well done brother.’


Other followers encouraged him to enjoy his birthday as he had lost a significant amount so far with one writing: ‘Birthday calories don’t count.’

‘Amazing well done with the weight loss! Hope you enjoyed your 40th,’ another wrote.

‘It doesn’t matter if you have put a few pounds back on you’ve enjoyed yourself,’ read a further comment, while another posted: ‘Doesn’t matter what the number is! You’ve earned having a treat weekend.’

Jason later shared a picture of his scales when he weighed himself after the celebrations.

‘For anyone playing ‘guess the weight’ after my birthday week! 15.8 wins it! Haha mostly water retention (he hopes!). Back on it,’ the Scarborough star wrote.

To celebrate the landmark birthday, Jason made us well and truly jealous by tucking into some incredible looking cakes and treats.
