GROUNDFORCE legend Tommy Walsh shocked Pointless viewers with a tale of dramatic weight loss.
The 66-year-old TV presenter, best known for his BBC gardening program, has made his debut in a new look.
He appeared on the New Year’s Eve edition of the celebrity program Pointless, presented by Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman.
In the show, the contestants try to score as few points as possible by racking their brains and trying to come up with answers to common questions that no one else can come up with.
Tim Key, Alex Horn, Ebony Usoro-Brown, Sharron Davis, Rhea Bailey, Diarmuid Gavin, and Natalie Jamison also appeared on the show.
Tommy was partnered with another Diarmuid gardener when the audience spotted him.
On social media, they couldn’t believe how gorgeous the TV presenter looks.
“Damn, Tommy Walsh lost a lot of weight #meaninglesscelebrities,” one viewer said.
The second added: “Wow what Tommy Walsh did, he looks amazing.”
“It’s great to see Tommy Walsh back on our screens alongside the equally wonderful Diarmuid. The highest marks for the fact that the brilliant Alex Horn was also in the frame, ”said the third.
A fourth added: “Tommy Walsh looks great.”
During the show, Tommy told Alexander and Richard that his daughter was due to give birth at any moment.
“She was due to give us our first grandchild five days later, so it seems appropriate that I returned to the film studio,” he said.
Richard, 52, then joked that Tommy had shared the news to get inside the heads of the other members.
“He tells you, ‘Look, it would be really cool if you let me win.’
— That’s what he says, isn’t it? It would be a lovely little gift for his first grandson or granddaughter.”
But with a score of 146, Tommy was eliminated in the first round.
Saying goodbye, 52-year-old Alexander said that this means that Tommy can now go to the hospital before wishing the health of his daughter Charlotte and new grandson.
Pointless is already available for streaming on iPlayer.
