The 53-year-old actor and I’m a celebrity … Get me out of here! – best known for his role as Albert Square chip shop owner Ian Beale – he said he initially gave up alcohol six weeks on the advice of a doctor and finished lost three stones.
Woodyatt said The Sun newspaper: “I went to the hospital with a stomach problem and they told me that my liver was probably a little damaged. They said: ‘Look, rest your liver for six weeks, we’ll do some tests.’
“Then COVID it happened and six weeks became 12 weeks.
“And I thought, ‘You know what – I broke this, I don’t miss it, I’m better off without it.'”
A soap star has been added Mirror: “With giving up alcohol, the weight decreases and because the weight has fallen, it is easier to ride a bike. That made it easier to stay in shape.
“For me, giving up alcohol was the right thing to do. I will not turn around and say that it is forever, that I will never drink again. But at this point in my life, yes, I am quite happy not to drink. And the result is that I lost about three stones in weight. “
Woodyatt is a passionate cyclist and has discovered that losing weight has allowed him to rediscover his hobby.

He said: “I used to love cycling, but I stopped for a while because it obviously wasn’t that easy when you carry that extra weight. I just got back into it now because it fits into my life right now.”
Actor – who starred in a BBC soap opera EastEnders from October 1984 to November 2020 – spent the last year lives in a motorcycle house and a tour of the countryside of Great Britain.
It has been said Cambridge Independent: “It was only while I was on tour [in stage adaptation of Peter James hit crime novel Looking Good Dead]but my daughter, who lived with me, moved to America.
“So I didn’t need a place for me and her. It was good, good, I’m just going to keep living in a motorbike house. I don’t need that property anymore.”
Ian Beale was last seen in Albert Square in January 2021 when his then-wife Sharon tried to poison him because she discovered he was responsible for her son Dennis Rickman drowning in a shipwreck a year earlier.
While Phil Mitchell also threatened to kill him, Ian fled Walford, throwing away his cell phone and later sending Sharon to annul the marriage.
