Matt Lucas is standing in for Zoe Ball on BBC Radio 2 this week, hosting her early morning Breakfast Show. Earlier today, the 47-year-old got to chat with Queen guitarist Brian May and opened up about his weight loss journey.
The comedian was joined by the 74-year-old rocker via a video call, while Brian filmed the interaction for his own social media account.
Matt revealed that the pair often send each other messages, but never as early as they did today ahead of his appearance on air.
Upon seeing his pal on the screen, Brian told Matt: “You look great.
“You look healthy. My God.”
“Thank you very much,” the host replied, before opening up about his recent weight loss.
“Well I texted…Me and Brian, we text each other. We can say that, can’t we?” he continued.
“We WhatsApp,” the musician chipped in.
“I told Dr Brian that it was time for me to lose some weight, so I’m on that path,” Matt divulged.
He went on to say that the pair would normally talk to each other later in the day because they are both night owls.
Earlier in the year, Matt said it was time to shed the pounds and get fitter after putting on weight due to lockdown, during an appearance on ITV’s Lorraine.
“I lost some weight, I needed to take the edge off, because I put on a lot of weight in lockdown.
“I’ve still got a bit of a tum,” he told the presenter.

Turning the tables on Matt this morning, Brian filmed their interview for a behind-the-scenes look at his life for Instagram, in view of his 2.8 million followers.
The Queen star has set out to record his day in a live video for fans, dubbing it BRI-TV.
Amid a very busy day, he chatted to Matt and then had an interview with Karl Stafanovic for Australian TV.
He then appeared on Lorraine Kelly’s ITV breakfast show.
During his appearance on the programme, he told stand-in host Christine Lampard about the event which coincides with his album launch. Brian is re-releasing his first solo album Back to the Light.
He said that his former bandmate Freddie Mercury had given the solo move his blessing and opened up about the “horrendous” experience he went through when penning his debut album.
Recalling his memories from 30 years ago, he said: “It was kind of chaotic really.
“We were doing very well, I suppose as musicians, but my life was falling to pieces all over the place.”
“First of all with losing Freddie, we knew we’re losing Freddie, some time during that period.”
“So we think we’re losing the band, the band is really our family. I’m losing my dad, my dad’s about to go, I’m losing my marriage because my marriage has broken up irretrievably,” he candidly continued.
