Tom – best known for playing Carl King on the ITV soap – shared a before and after snap and told fans how he decided to make a change after being left feeling ‘low’ and struggling to find work.

He explained: “I started working with Lee back in September as I was feeling pretty low in myself. Covid hit me HARD in terms of lack of work opportunities, leaving me feeling a bit bereft and low on self esteem and motivation.

“This resulted in me piling on the weight and feeling pretty s***y all round.”

Tom continued: “I had my reservations about online coaching and whether it would work and I’ve never really been a keen gym person. But Lee is brilliant.

“I loved working with him. It was just so easy and basically it’s a bit like having a cheerleader in your pocket! I loved the accountability and how he tailored everything to me – from the workouts to the meal planning, to giving me a kick up the a**e when I needed it!!”

Revealing his incredible achievement, he shared: “I have lost over 16kg (2.5 Stone in old ) and I haven’t been this lean for over 20 years.

“We haven’t finished yet so we will keep going but I just wanted to thank @leejonespt for all he’s done for me and getting me out of the rut I was in.

“I feel healthy and strong and I’ve got some exciting work coming in at the start of this year too, so all in all it was 100% the right decision.”

The Sun previously revealed that Tom, who played scheming Carl on the soap between 2004 and 2012, has set up a window cleaning company in Blackpool to bring in extra cash between jobs.

His Emmerdale character Carl was killed off when he had his head bashed in by Cameron Murray in 2012 – forcing Tom to move on in his career.
