The comic is looking completely different


Lenny Henry showed off the results of his dramatic weight loss yesterday.

The comic, 55 – who divorced ex-wife Dawn French in 2010 – looked slimmer than ever as he made his way around London in a grey suit.

He paired the smart two-piece with a white shirt, a patterned tie and a pair of brown shoes.

But the dad-of-one looked a little weighed down as he balanced a rucksack on his back and lugged a suit carrier and a plastic bag in his hands.

Lenny revealed in January that he’d lost between 2.5-3st after being diagnosed with diabetes, a disease that caused his late mother Winifred to have a double leg amputation.

‘I’m a bit diabetic, so I was put on a very strict diet. It’s lots of greens, lots of juice and lots of walking. Swimming is good,’ Lenny told the Daily Mirror.

‘You’ve got to eat no sugar and drink hardly any alcohol… all the stuff you like. You can’t Hobnob your way through the day.’

Lenny first displayed a slimmed-down physique at London’s Women In Film And Television awards in December.
