Gordon Ramsay lost four stone so his wife stayed with him
He weighed over 18 stone at his heaviest.
Although celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has recently made headlines for getting ripped, he has revealed that he did not always look after himself as well as he does now.
In a recent interview, he opened up to the Daily Mail about what prompted him to get into shape.
"Tana was not impressed with the way I was," he told the newspaper.
"I was overweight, 18 stone. I looked like a sack of s**t. I look at the pictures and think, 'How did Tana stay around?' Because Tana has got better-looking and more gorgeous. And there she is, getting in bed with a fat f**k."

However, having reached a low-point in his life in terms of his physique, he then began working out and competing in 'iron man' events. He now weights just 13st 10lb.
Explaining his change in lifestyle, he added: "I started focusing on getting super-fit five or six years ago when my life got super-busy. You get consumed by the work. You get sucked up. You get drawn in. All of a sudden your 'me time' is zero.
"There was no breathing space, no down time, no time to even think straight. It all started hitting me hard. I didn't panic, but my head was not in the game."
