JOHNNY Vegas showed off his five stone weight loss as he made a very dapper appearance at the TV Choice Awards last night.
The 48-year-old, who weighed 18 stone at his heaviest, was spotted taking selfies and making a series of women laugh as he enjoyed a cigarette break at the bash.
The actor, who first revealed his new look in the summer of 2018, was very smart in a black suit with waist coat and baker boy hat.
Johnny – whose real name is Michael Pennington – previously revealed his slimmed down figure was down to overhauling his lifestyle.
He said: “I am very careful about coming on and celebrating weight loss because it makes other people feel bad.
“I have not done a diet in anyway whatsoever. I have cut out things, it’s a lifestyle change – and not a drastic diet.
“Then you can live with it and you don’t feel like you are denying yourself anything – apart from cheese!”
Meanwhile Johnny’s wife Maia Dunphy recently opened up about their unconventional relationship following their brief split in 2018.
The couple announced they were going their separate ways last year but reunited shortly afterwards.
Maia, who raises the couple’s son Tom in Dublin while Johnny is based in the UK, told how their relationship is simply different to what people accept as the norm.

Maia said: “Things are the way they always were. Life is complicated. People don’t understand it and try to put a label on it.
“It’s work. Myself and Tom were just over in London for two weeks as Johnny was filming Open All Hours in a studio there and it’s rare he’s in one place for that amount of time.
“It’s the nature of the business. You go where the work takes you.”
