TOMMY Mallet has revealed his “life has been turned upside down” after learning he was at risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
The 29-year-old was shocked at the prognosis despite his ‘good health’ and admitted he was now on a mission to lose weight.
He told MailOnline: ‘My whole world was turned upside down last week to be honest with you. It’s crazy. I did a 360 test with blood work and I’m at risk for type 2 diabetes. I’m really healthy.
“But with covid I started eating a bit of sugar because I can’t taste anything anymore, and it seems to have gotten the better of me. I’ve been working really hard over the last week, really trying to lose weight.
Tommy admitted it might be trickier than he had anticipated, as his son Brody was sick.
He explained: ‘I’ve seen a top nutritionist so I’m working on it, but the baby has the flu and he’s been crying all night. I’ve been up all night with him. So to be honest with you, it’s a bit of a war zone.
Tommy and his fiancée Georgia Kousoulou welcomed their son in May last year and documented part of their journey to parenthood in Baby Steps.
They now have to show fans more of their lives in a second series – focusing on raising their son and also their engagement.
Georgia has always been praised by her followers for her honest take on parenthood and the post-baby concerns that many new parents face.
Footwear entrepreneur Tommy popped the question in February this year after dating for eight years.
The couple met and found a fan on Towie in 2014.
