The Project’s Peter Helliar was left blushing on Monday night after co-host Carrie Bickmore praised his incredible weight loss.

‘Someone is needing to add holes to their belt,’ she said, leaving Peter flustered over the compliment.

‘You should feel proud!’ she added, noticing his bashful reaction. 

Peter replied: ‘But I had a fair bit to work on. ‘You’ve got more time [in isolation] and I have chosen to do a bit more exercise.’

‘You look amazing, and fit, Pete,’ Carrie answered, leading Peter to joke: ‘This is not supposed to be a flirt fest. Please!’ before he begged for the subject to be changed.  

Peter recently told Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Weekend magazine that he’s ‘lighter’ than he’s been in ages and is finally under his 100kg goal.

The father-of-three admitted he’s been struggling with extra kilos since he was a child.

‘I was always the kid wearing T-shirts while swimming,’ the How To Stay Married star said.

But breaking under the 100kg mark ‘felt really good’ and was spurring him on to continue his health journey.
