Johnny Vegas reveals he's lost three stone by cutting out 'all the things I love' after vowing to get healthy for his kids

He decided to undergo a lifestyle makeover so he could be around for his kids.

The funnyman, 48, was left devastated after his father Laurence Pennington passed away in March, 2017 after a battle with cancer.

Afterwards, Johnny – who is dad to two sons – vowed to change his ways and get fit.

It took 15 months to lose three stone by cutting out "all the things I love" and he's now determined to complete the health kick by quitting smoking.

During his appearance on This Morning today, he explained: "I just want to be a good parent and be there for my kids.

"My big thing is my smoking. I want to stop. Last time I stopped I piled weight on so I need to get right enough to exercise.

"I've lost weight, it's took 15 months of walking past bread and cheese and everything I love."

However, the star – who weighed 18 stone at his heaviest – says he's planning to treat himself to a cheeseboard at Christmas.

He also admits he "fell off the wagon" during a recent holiday as he tucked into chips topped with cheese, bacon and barbecue sauce.

He was talking about his weight loss journey on This Morning

Johnny was on the show to promote MacMillan Cancer Support's upcoming World's Biggest Coffee Morning on September 28th.

He revealed the charity helped his family after they "went into a tailspin" after his dad's death.

Johnny fought back tears as he talked about the last days of his dad's life and painful decision to put him into a hospice.
