Go Compare advert star Wynne Evans takes on a week-long juice cleanse in a bid to lose weight after being inspired by Carol Vorderman
Go Compare advert star Wynne Evans has given up eating solid food for a week in a bid to lose weight.
The opera singer, 51, has been on a health kick after his weight crept up to 22 stone and is now taking extreme measures by sticking to a special diet of fruit and vegetable smoothies four times a day.
While he may be missing out on hot meals, TV’s Gio Compario will be in balmy surroundings after checking into Juice Master Retreat in Portugal, where a week’s stay costs up to £1,150.
While at the health farm he will start each day at 6am with meditation, then yoga, circuit training and a walk around the grounds of the country retreat.
Evans has already lost four stone after vowing to get mentally and physically fit but admitted he’s ‘hit a plateau’ and hopes this will kickstart the process.

Evans told the listeners of his morning show on Radio Wales: ‘I’ve cancelled my holidays to go and see my nephew and decided to go on a health retreat instead.
‘You just drink juice for a week – it makes you more healthy.
‘I could be well buffed by the time I get back. People will be going: “Who’s that Adonis that’s walked in the building?”
‘I’ll be like: “Stand back ladies it’s only Wynne Evans – nothing to see here.”‘
Welsh tenor Evans, from Cardiff, revealed he got the idea from Carol Vorderman who also has a show on BBC Wales.
The Countdown star, 62, was last at the retreat in January, spending a week Alison Hammond where they danced alongside the likes of Rob Rinder, Carol Vorderman, Denise Welch, Alex Scott and Jason himself.
He said: ‘Vorders went on it and she looks good, not that I’d want to look like her if you know what I mean. I’ll let you know how it goes, I’m looking forward to it.’
Documenting his stay on Instagram, Evans shared a snap of the activity board and penned: ‘Loving day two @juicemasterretreats it’s utterly brilliant. I’m doing as many classes as possible. Meeting like minded people and starting to feel full of energy.’

Evans has been documenting his weight loss journey on social media, and previously revealed his size increased following his marriage breakdown and the loss of both his parents.
The father-of-two is best known for appearing the adverts for Go Compare, a role that’s lasted 14 years.
However, the Welsh tenor had a successful career before making it on TV.
He was cast as Ubaldo Piangi, in the 25th Anniversary production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall and has sung at 30 Welsh international rugby matches.
Blast from the past! The TV star has been a fixture on screens since 2009 in his operatic alter-ego Gio Compario, known for his signature tuxedo and curled moustache
