Bobby Brazier said he is ‘tiny’ after losing four inches from his waist during his stint on Strictly Come Dancing.
The EastEnders actor, 20, will dance in the quarter finals with his partner Dianne Buswell, 34, on Saturday, and ahead of the show appeared on BBC Breakfast on Thursday.
During the interview, Bobby revealed his waist has gone from 31ins to 27ins following 11 hour a day rehearsals with the professional dancer.
He told hosts Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty: ‘I’m so much fitter and stronger. I’ve got a 27inch waist now. That’s tiny. It was something like 31inches before’.
Dianne responded: ‘Wow. I make sure he eats a lot as well.’

Bobby revealed he had ordered in a stack of pancakes ahead of starting rehearsals on their Salsa to I’ve Had The Time Of My Life from Dirty Dancing for Musicals Week.
Dianne said how they can often train from 9am in the morning until 8pm at night with only Sunday off.
The pair were riding a high after their powerful Couple’s Choice performance to This Woman’s Work last Saturday which was done in tribute to Bobby’s late mother Jade Goody.
Jade passed away in 2009 aged 27 after a battle with cervical cancer when Bobby was just five-years-old.
Bobby said: ‘it was amazing. I knew if I wanted to do Couple’s Choice that I would want to dance to this song because it’s beautiful.
‘I found it kind of daunting though because I thought the song was really perfect so to put my stamp on perfection is scary but I’m really glad that we did.’
Dianne said: ‘He is doing amazingly well and he’s teaching me a lot. I know for a 20-year-old it’s quite crazy how mature he is.
‘On the weekend was really beautiful and I felt honoured to be a part of Bobby’s story and I feel like together it was just perfect. We are a little dream team. He’s doing so good.’

It comes after Bobby revealed his emotional two-word tribute to his late mother Jade Goody, after she died when he was just five years old.
The soap star shared the moving homage during a candid interview with The Mirror, after leaving viewers in tears with his emotional dance.
He said: ‘If I could see her again for one moment, I’d tell her, ”Thank you” and give her a cuddle.’
His father, TV presenter Jeff, 44, single-handedly raised him and younger brother Freddie, 19, with the pair both shedding some tears as they watched on from the audience.
