Johnny Vegas is suffering from tendinitis

The 48-year-old actor has shed five stone following his gout diagnosis, but the comedian has now discovered he has tendinitis - inflammation of a tendon, most commonly caused by overuse - and compares his ailment to "wearing a new pair of shoes for two days".

Speaking on "Loose Women", he said: "Tendinitis, it's like breaking in a new pair of heels.

"It's just wearing a new pair of shoes for two days and then it just goes. I defeated gout and now tendinitis - what's next lord what's next?"

The "Benidorm" star also insisted he didn't shift his weight with a diet, and instead has made a "lifestyle change" where he doesn't feel as though he's restricting himself from the things he enjoys eating.

He said: "I have not done a diet in anyway whatsoever. I have cut out things, it's a lifestyle change. Then you can live with it and you don't feel like you are denying yourself anything - apart from cheese!"

The "Ideal" actor joined the all-star cast taking part in a special series of "The Great Celebrity Bake Off" for Stand Up To Cancer, and admitted it was "even harder" to make healthy choices while on the show.

He said: "It was even harder because I have never baked.

"I have never had a sweet tooth and for the amount of effort that goes into it, go to a cake shop.

"It makes a mess of your kitchen. I wanted the Paul Hollywood handshake so badly, I even made a robot of him ... I was practicing."
