The Beast has been inspired since February to lose a further five stone on top of his previous weight loss efforts.
He claimed his weight loss is down to battling coronavirus.
Mark has been on a mission to slim down to fight the disease ever since.
Obesity is claimed to be a big factor behind the toll coronavirus takes, with large frames associated with faring far worse.
However, Mark has now lost the huge amount of weight, slimming down from 27 stone to 23 stone.
His BMI is now less than 30, putting him in the overweight category and no longer the obese one.
Mark told The Sun on Sunday: “I got suspected Covid at the end of February, and got sent home from work, for the first time in 15 years, on Wednesday 27th.
“ITV were brilliant, and took no chances.
“Because the testing capacity was so limited then, I never formally got a test but all I can say is that for two weeks I had complete loss of appetite, no sense of smell, a temperature, exhaustion and the worst fever of my life.”

Mark previously told The Loose Women he was initially inspired to lose weight due to another health condition.
He told the ITV panel show viewers: “It was the diabetes.
“My colleague Paul Sinha also got the diagnosis and he rapidly lost two stone and he went from being diabetic to pre or non-diabetic.”
He cut out sugar in a bid to avoid the illness.
Mark added: “I’m waiting for my next check up and I’m hoping the figures are going to be better.”
“I’m still eating very well – I’m just cutting out sugar because of the Type 2 diabetes.”
TV chef Tom Kerridge’s weight loss has seen him lose an incredible 12 stone.
The 47-year-old has credited his transformation to the “happy” diet plan.
This is known as the dopamine diet which involves boosting levels of the so-called “happy hormone” so that it is easier to stick to the diet plan.
Reaching nearly 30 stone, Tom decided to ditch the carbs and now weighs a much healthier 18 stone.
While slimming down, Tom revealed he would fill up on healthy fats and try to eat less carbohydrates.
He would also fill up on fresh fruits and vegetables which were low in calories.
