Blue singer Antony Costa has had quite the transformation, the star revealing how he shed 16lbs on today's (October 12) Good Morning Britain.

Appearing on the show, hosts Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway showed a picture of Antony before his weight loss, with the star explaining that was what had spurred him on.

"That's the picture that changed my life," he said.

"Should you tell people that he or she is fat or overweight? It took that photo to change my life. I could've changed that into a negative, but I didn't. I changed that into a positive."

The singer revealed that he cut out sugar and carbs from his diet and hit the gym in order to help him shed the pounds.

Earlier this year, Antony appeared on Lorraine to talk about his big change, telling the host: "I feel on top of the world Lorraine, I feel a different person, just half of me."

"It was just my posture and the way I was standing so I was just not happy with myself," he added of how he used to look. "My posture has got better, I feel great and I'm ready to take on the world."

Meanwhile, over the summer Antony joined his Blue bandmates as fellow member Simon Webbe tied the knot to his fiancee Ayshen Kemal.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV at 6am.
