Matt Lucas reveals he was ‘thin-shamed’ at football match over weight loss

Matt Lucas has spoken out about being ‘thin-shamed’ while at a football match over the weekend.

The Great British Bake Off host was on hand to watch Arsenal beat Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium in London on Saturday afternoon.

However, while he cheered his beloved team to victory, the comedian was stopped by a woman and questioned about his weight loss.

Taking to Twitter, the 47-year-old penned: ‘Shout out to the lady who stopped me at football today to ask me why I’ve lost weight and to inform me I look a lot older.

‘For the first time in my life, I think I’ve just been thin-shamed.’

Fans rushed to Matt’s defence and offered their support in the replies, blasting the woman in question.

‘I lost some weight, I needed to take the edge of, because I put on a lot of weight in lockdown,’ he told the host. 

‘I’ve still got a bit of a tum.’
