This Is England’s Thomas Turgoose has hit the gym is absolutely ripped now


He’s lost a load of weight and looks a lot different nowadays

Actor Thomas Turgoose, best known for playing Shaun in Shane Meadow’s 2006 film This Is England and its follow-up TV series, has posted a photo to social media showing off his dramatic weight loss.

The 26-year-old actor has dropped from 13 stone to just 10 after he began working out – saying he enjoys “running, football and the gym” as a good way of “keeping [himself] sane.”

Sharing the before after pic to Twitter, he wrote: “Went from over 13 stone to just over 10 stone. Feeling very good. Healthy and fit at the minute.”

Fans on Twitter praised him for the transformation, one wrote: “Looking great mate. Keep it going”, another added: “Congrats fella no pain no gain and all that well done.”

He follows in the footsteps of Jeward and Drake from Drake and Josh, as someone who has hit the gym and got ripped over the past year.

But it’s not just celebrities who can change their lifestyle for the better. We’ve previously featured a range of stories of men who have undergone dramatic lifestyle changes, including a ‘bottle a night’ man who dropped almost half his body weight and an IT consultant who ditched a 4,000 calorie-a-day diet to get seriously ripped.

If you – or someone you know – has made an impressive transformation with a story to tell, you could be featured on JOE’s Transformation Tuesday!
