The picture comes after Ramsay revealed he lost a whopping 25kg with a military-style diet and exercise overhaul.

The TV star previously told The Times in an interview: "Tana was not impressed with the way I was.

"I was overweight, 18 stone (114kg). 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."

Going on beach holidays with famous friends David and Victoria Beckham also made him feel more self-conscious.

He said: "I didn't have a figure. I didn't feel that good."

Aside from keeping the romance alive, he also revealed that his other motivation for prioritising his health was because his father died from a heart attack at the age of 53 and he wanted to be around for his kids Megan, 19, twins Holly and Jack, both 18 and Tilly, 16.

He explained: "It was painful. I used to look at myself in the mirror and think, 'Holy s**t!' So it was a big wake-up call."

Today he weighs 83kg and does Ironman competitions with his wife which includes a 1.9km swim, 90km bike ride, and a 21km run.
