Prime Minister Boris Johnson has hired a celebrity personal trainer in a bid to battle the bulge after being overweight was named an aggravating factor in battling coronavirus.
The PM has this week been snapped jogging around Westminster with Instagram-famous '"performance coach" Harry Jameson and is said to be "really serious" about losing weight.
Weight and age are aggravating factors for Covid-19 and make sufferers much more likely to die or need hospital treatment.
A Number 10 source admitted to the Evening Standard: "Yes, he has engaged a personal trainer. I can confirm it is Harry Jameson.
"It's because he is really serious about getting fit, as anyone who has seen him over the past couple of months knows. Boris is raring to go."
The photographs emerged the day after claims Mr Johnson was planning to step down in six months because his brush with Covid-19 had left him exhausted.
Sir Humphry Wakefield, the father-in-law of Dominic Cummings, is said to have made the claim to a holidaymaker visiting his castle in Northumberland.
Mr Johnson denied the claim yesterday.
