One Strictly star has noticed the pounds dropping off as they’ve taken to the dancefloor…
If Strictly Come Dancing is famous for anything (bar its vibrant fake-tanned stars and glittering OTT costumes) it’s the much-talked about way its celeb contestants quickly lose weight.
Its celeb contestants have often noted how a stint on the Strictly dancefloor has resulted in a slimmer and more toned figure. In fact, chef James Martin has previously credited the show with helping him lose five stone!
And the effects of intensive training and constant movement are clear for the audience to see too. Week-by-week, it’s not hard to notice that the famous faces are becoming far more slimmer than when they begun the competition.
But it seems as though one of this year’s contestants is noticing a far bigger change in his physique than the rest.
Eastenders star Davood Ghadami has revealed that his Strictly training is causing such huge weight loss that his normal clothes no longer fit him!
Not that Davood needed to drop any weight anyway…
At the recent Pride of Britain awards, which he attended with partner Nadiya Bychkova, he revealed all…
Davood’s Strictly weight loss…
He confessed, “When you first go on [the show] you go into a fitting. And with the Latin trousers I was given, we first did the cha cha. And then we did a jive last week and they had to take them in.”
Davood continued: “If you want to lose weight, get fit and have fun, I recommend dancing.”
However, he revealed that he hasn’t actually been bothered about his weight at all during his Strictly run.
“I haven’t had time to step on the scales. I have lost some mass. But I’ve been eating more than ever!”
During the interview, Davood also shared just how much he’s enjoying his foray into the world of ballroom. He even admitted that he would “love” to keep at it.
“I’m actually enjoying something I never thought I’d A. do or B. benefit from or find fun,” he revealed. “It’s jumping into the unknown, well out of my comfort zone.”
He added, “I’m looking forward to Saturdays, as long as we [motioning to Nadiya] have enough time in the week. But it’s something I would love to keep doing.”
