‘It was the first lockdown. Because none of us have ever experienced anything like that,’ he told us. ‘I like being at home like the next person but I like being at home knowing I’ve got work coming in.
‘I was at home literally just sitting in front of the TV not doing anything. I was comfort eating and it got to the point where I just got used to eating crap food.
‘I was just eating what the kids were having and I was like “I don’t know when this (lockdown) is going to end”.’

‘I got to the point where I wasn’t happy with myself and when the summer hit and we could go out and do things I just thought I’ve got to change my lifestyle,’ he added.
The singer’s pals were quick to comment on his new look, with fellow Coach Trip stars Woody and Kleiny commenting: ‘Class mate, Happy New Year.’
X Factor winner Ben Haenow said: ‘Smashed it mate.’
While soap star Ryan Thomas added: ‘Amazing bro.’
Antony, who has recently taken part in new TV series Celebs Go Skating, went on to talk about how hard it has been trying to homeschool his six-year-old daughter.

‘It’s hard trying to get her to concentrate,’ he continued.
‘When we do go back to normality, you’re just thinking to yourself “I don’t want my child falling behind”.
‘You’re just constantly worrying whether your child is going to be okay if and when they go back. Are they going to be behind certain children?
‘I’ve heard that they’re going to be kept behind and that’s the worst thing you can do, it will knock their confidence.’
