Matt Lucas has lost a considerable amount of weight over the past couple of years, as a result of lots of exercises and eating healthier. Over the weekend, the comedian and Great British Bake off presenter attended a football match, where a member of the public negatively commented on his slimmer physique. 

Matt attended the Arsenal versus Manchester United football match at the Emirates Stadium in London on Saturday. 

Despite thousands of fans previously praising his weight loss, there was one who “thin-shamed” the comedian. 

Matt explained what happened on Twitter. 

He wrote: “Shout out to the lady who stopped me at football today to ask me why I’ve lost weight and to inform me I look a lot older.

Matt spoke about his weight loss during an appearance on ITV’s Lorraine last year. 

The host asked him: “How on earth though, have you been in lockdown and working on Bake Off and you’ve lost tonnes of weight?”

I’ve lost some weight, I needed to take the edge off, because I put on a lot of weight in lockdown,” Matt said. ”I just had to do something about it.

“I’ve still got a bit of a tum, I’ve got a little bit of a tum, I’m not a skinny minnie.” 

As for how Matt lost weight, he decided to “get fit” during lockdown. 

He said: “The one thing I need to do is get fitter, I have put on a little bit of weight, that’s my next challenge to do a bit more exercise.
