Mike Bushell weight loss: Strictly Come Dancing contestant reveals intensity of training


Mike Bushell is an English sports presenter for the BBC. He presents the sports on BBC Breakfast on Fridays and at the weekends.

The presenter divulged that the gruelling daily routine of training and perfecting dance routines has had a positive effect on Mike’s health.  

Speaking to Dan Walker on BBC Breakfast, a few weeks back, Mike revealed that he had lost just over a stone since he started on the show - and anticipates losing more if he stays in the competition.  

Mike, who chatted with Dan via video link, was joined by wife Emily who joked that she was “worried” about the new slim look.

Dan said to the couple: "When a man gets married, he tends to put on a bit of weight but Mike’s actually transformed hasn’t he, because what are you know? You must be near a stone and a half in terms of weight loss?”

Mike replied: “I think it’s a stone and a couple of pounds. Approaching a stone and a half, yes. It just increases each week.”

Emily chipped in: "He’s fading away! I’m a bit worried about him! It just goes to show the exercise he’s doing, it’s really transformed him.

“I’m loving the new, leaner Mike.”

Weight loss has not been the only benefit to Mike, who revealed another thing he has noticed since starting training.

He said: “I think I’m less clumsy now, I think I’ve a sharper mind, it improves your mental agility.”

However his wife seemed less sure of this change, so she joked: "Maybe not!”

In the past, Mike has spoken up about his love for unhealthy foods and drinks, however altering his daily routine has helped him lose the extra weight.

He told Loose Women: “I like my food, my wine and my beer.

"It just shows how good dancing is for you. Dancing is transforming.

“I’m standing up straight, I have a different posture - we are a nation of looking down at our mobile phones.”

Ahead of his appearance on Strictly he said: “I am so excited to be joining this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

“I’ve heard so many wonderful things from colleagues over the years so thrilled I’m now getting the chance.

“I know I will completely throw myself into the whole experience and I’m sure will love it from start to finish.

“I may have tried and profiled over 500 sports over the years in my Saturday morning BBC Breakfast slot but think the Strictly challenge could be the greatest. Bring on the glitter!”

Mike isn’t the only celebrity to be sporting a much slimmer physique.

Loose Women’s Nadia Sawalha has lost an incredible amount of weight after a charity trek.

Nadaia Sawalha was one of the many celebrities who took part in CoppaFeel's charity trek in the Himalayas last week, and as a result of all the walking, the former EastEnders actress has lost half a stone.

The mother-of-two opened up about her weight loss on her YouTube channel, and while she was happy about it, some of her fans were concerned about her and urged the star to take care of herself.

Strictly Come Dancing airs this Saturday on BBC One at 7pm
