Matt Lucas lashes out after being ‘thin shamed’ by stranger at football game

Great Britain’s Bake-Off presenter Matt Lucas has told fans he was approached by a woman who commented on his recent weight loss while watching Arsenal take on Manchester United

Matt Lucas has spoken out about being “thinly ashamed” while watching Arsenal’s clash with Manchester United on Saturday.

The popular Great British Bake Off presenter, 48, has previously opened up about being inspired to “get fitter” after gaining “a lot of weight in lockdown”.

After looking noticeably trimmer in recent months, Matt’s weight loss has been praised by his fans, with the star joking he had never been ‘thin ashamed’ in his life until he stopped by Emirates Stadium to watch his team this weekend see.

Matt wrote on Twitter after the game: “Call the lady who hit me at soccer today to ask me why I lost weight and to tell me I look a lot older.

“For the first time in my life, I think I was only thinly ashamed,” he added.

After sharing the encounter, Matt’s followers were quick to offer him support.

“You look amazing and most importantly happy,” one replied, while another agreed, telling Matt, “You look amazing!

Another assured the star: “I’m embarrassed thin if I lose weight and embarrassed fat if I gain a little.” I’ve come to the conclusion that a lot of people just want to drag you down no matter what.”

Matt opened up about his weight loss during an appearance on The Lorraine Show last year.

The ITV presenter told Matt she was amazed he had managed to lose weight during lockdown and during the Bake Off event.

Matt replied: “I’ve lost some weight, I’ve had to take the edge off because I’ve gained a lot in lockdown.

“I just had to do something about it,” he added, to which Lorraine replied, “Yeah, just don’t eat that much and walk around a little more, that’s kind of what you have to do.”

Matt said: “I still have a little bit of a tummy ache, I’ve got a little bit of a tummy ache, I’m not skinny Minnie.”

A year earlier, Matt revealed he was dying to “get fit” during lockdown after believing he had gained weight.

He said: “The only thing I have to do is get fitter, I’ve gained a bit of weight, that’s my next challenge, to do a bit more sport.

“I might have to make a game of it when I go out and train to avoid people.

“I don’t have a garden, so I have to find a way to do that.”
