Go Compare star wows fans with dramatic transformation
The singer unveiled his new look on Instagram
Go Compare star Wynne Evans has stunned fans by revealing his dramatic transformation on Instagram.
The opera singer — who has been starring as Gio Compario in the TV adverts for more than a decade — is thought to have shed 5.5 stone in weight.
Talking to The Mirror, Evans said his weight peaked at 23.6 stone, but began a health kick in September 2022.
"You can only do it when you're ready to do it, when you know you can get through it," said Evans.
"Life is about putting in the work yourself. You put in some work on your mental health or your physical health, and then you get a bit of luck - that luck could be an opportunity, like it was with me getting the Go.Compare job, or it could be the spark that makes you lose weight or get healthier."
He recently opened up about how his marriage "fell apart" and he fell into "the worst depression", and found food to be a source of comfort. He credits cycling, running, and a calorie-counting diet for his weight loss.
He has now showed off the results in a string of snaps on his Instagram account and fans can't get over how different he looks.

"Your dieting and weight loss is incredible," said one of his fans.
"Hope you're feeling better for it."
"Looking very trim dude," said another person. "Well done for sticking to it."
"Wow Wynne looking fantastic with your weight loss, well done," somebody else posted.
"Looking very sexy there Wynne," said another, while one fan said that the TV star was looking "very hot".
One fan remarked that the tenor was looking very "slimline" in his latest pictures.
"Takes determination and will power to stick to a diet," noted another.
Evans is best known for Go Compare and has previously said that the adverts had changed his life.
Speaking to The Sunday Times last year, he said: "My career has been built on those ads.

"At first, there was a bit of a backlash - it was an ad that people loved to hate - and I found that a bit upsetting. But crucially, the ads got the company noticed and it's never really looked back."
