Following The Chase’s win, Mark took to Twitter to thank fans.

“So we won again. Three times for #thechase and twice for #beatthechasers now, we must be doing something right. Thank you all so much 🙂 xx,” he wrote. 

Meanwhile, Mark has been on a weight loss journey since 2020.

Back during the height of the pandemic, Mark revealed that he had lost a whopping five stone following a suspected bout of Covid.

Although he never got tested for the virus, Mark explained that he suffered “uncontrollable spells” of fever.

Speaking to The Sun on Sunday at the time, Mark opened up about his struggle with the suspected Covid, as well as his weight loss journey.

He explained that at the end of February 2020, he got suspected Covid.

“Because the testing capacity was so limited then, I never formally got a test but all I can say is that for two weeks I had a complete loss of appetite, no sense of smell, a temperature, exhaustion and the worst fever of my life,” he said.

Mark then explained that as a “self-proclaimed fatty”, he knew that his weight could make Covid more severe for him.

He said he knew that he needed to lose weight, or potentially put himself at even more of a risk.

“I basically didn’t eat for two weeks but since then the weight has continued to drop off because I have continued to eat sensibly. I knew I had to,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mark previously told the Loose Women that he was on a strict diet.

He explained: “I’m on a high protein diet, so eating an awful lot of meat and lean meat.

“As much as I love chips and other carbs, I’m having quite a bit less than I used to. And it’s sort of became a virtuous cycle, I’m not feeling that hungry, so you eat less, so you lose weight, so you’re not as hungry.”
