Little Britain star Matt Lucas appeared on The One Show on Thursday and fans noticed the impressive weight loss
Matt Lucas shocked viewers who tuned in to watch his interview on BBC’s The One Show as he showed off his impressive weight loss.
The Little Britain star, 48, looked dramatically different during his chat on the evening show on Thursday.
He went on the show with his mother to discuss his appearance on the BBC series Who Do You Think You Are, which shows his family’s unexpected connection to Anne Frank.
The Great British Bake Off looked dapper as he wore a button-up shirt along with a navy suit.
Viewers were amazed by his weight loss and took to social media to comment on the difference in his appearance.
“#mattlucas looks like he’s lost some weight. Looking good.#TheOneShow,” one shocked viewer wrote.
Another commented: “@RealMattLucas applauds to your weight loss. Watching you on #TheOneShow Looking fine!”
“Good on Matt for losing the weight but that suit looks 4 sizes to big,” another impressed fan added.
One fan said: “Matt Lucas looking great with his weight loss!!!” along with a 100 emoji and a flexing arm emoji.
A viewer also commented: “Watching #theoneshow #mattlucas has lost so much weight! I need to know his diet.”
Matt impressed The Great British Bake Off fans with his incredible weight loss as he appeared at the National Television Awards last year.
The Channel 4 program won the Best Challenge Show award in September, with Bake Off hosts Noel Fielding and Matt and judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood joining by video link.

Accepting the award, Matt thanked his co-stars for making him “so welcome”, but again it was his weight that got fans talking with one tweeting the night of the show: “Bloody hell @RealMattLucas you have lost so much weight, well done him.”
Matt said of his appearance: “I lost some weight, I needed to take the edge off, because I put on a lot of weight in lockdown. I’ve still got a bit of a tum.
“The one thing I need to do is get fitter, I have put on a little bit of weight, that’s my next challenge to do a bit more exercise.
“I might have to make a game of it when I go out an exercise to stay out of people’s way. I don’t have a garden so I have to find a way to do that.”
At one point several months ago, the star revealed he was ‘thin-shamed’ for the first time.
