When he proposed to his wife a year ago, he began to worry about how he would look like in his wedding photos which prompted him to make the decision of losing weight.

Tom began a strict diet along with dance classes and voila! he became completely unrecognisable to guests by the time they both decided to wed in July.

Abby speaking on her partner's weight loss said, "his weight never bothered me – from a health perspective I did worry, but I loved him for who he was.

“But I thought it was a great idea when he decided to lose weight for the wedding.

“He was very passionate about it and of course I supported him, but I never pushed him.

“The wedding dance is very Tom – I was a bit nervous but I knew how much it meant to him.

“He really wanted to do it and it was a lot of fun.

“He arranged the whole thing, choreography and everything, and I’m really glad we did it.

“It was lovely to see a more confident Tom that I haven’t seen before.

“He’s always been happy but losing weight gave him an extra boost, which is lovely to see.
