Gregg Wallace has opened up about the scary truth he had to face before overhauling his lifestyle.
The Masterchef host, 56, has lost a whopping four stone after ditching his unhealthy diet and focusing on his exercise routines.
And it seems as though Gregg was faced with a very difficult fact – either lead a healthier lifestyle or suffer from a heart attack down the line.
Appearing on Good Morning Britain, Gregg recalled: "The doctor said you have huge cholesterol here, unless you do something you're going to have a heart attack.
"I went on a weight loss and fitness site and in there I tell you how I went from the guy on the left hand side of the screen [to the one on the right]. I'm 56 years old what do you think guys."
Gregg said the doctor told him he's have a heart attack if he didn't change up his lifestyle

And while the thought of losing weight for many people is linked to going on a diet, for Gregg, it's the complete opposite.
The telly presenter admitted that he doesn't "believe in diets" as they're not sustainable.
"Seriously for people I don't believe in diets, I don't believe in doing something you can't sustain, I don't believe in starving yourself three times a week," he said.
