We asked Allen to reveal how he shed the pounds ahead of a career-changing night…
What was your previous weight?
I was 20 stone on Christmas day. I was absolutely ecstatic. I was fat and happy.
I have a three-egg plain omelette, with maybe a few herbs in, no sauce. Now and again, if I’m lucky, I’ll have some brown toast with it. I have a cup of tea and two litres of water.
An apple and a banana. A Washington Red, the only apple I’ll eat anyway.
Chicken breast, jacket potato, and some grated mild cheddar.
A pear, a satsuma, and 11 cashew nuts.
A piece of red meat with some rice, and some steamed vegetables. Probably beef or bison.
One Lion bar a week with a can of Coke Zero.
