Eamonn Holmes called 'a heart attack waiting to happen' by weight-loss expert on Good Morning Britain

Eamonn Holmes has been told by a weight-loss expert he is a "heart attack waiting to happen" if he did not shed some pounds.

Steven Miller, appearing on Monday's Good Morning Britain (GMB), told the broadcaster he was "too fat".

GMB was hosting a debate on whether the doctor who called patients "fat and lazy" in his medical notes was correct to criticise their weight.

However, the Northern Irishmen said he agreed with Mr Miller's comments about his weight.

Co-host Kate Garraway asked Mr Miller what he would say to Eammon if he was his doctor.

Ms Garraway said: "What would you say to Eamonn? Eamonn comes in and says he's got a bit of a sore throat and he's having tummy ache or whatever your moan might be."

Eamonn then asked him if he would tell him to lose two or three stone to fix his health problems.

Mr Miller said: "I would say that but I would also say to Eamonn that he is too fat and he is a heart attack waiting to happen. He's about to clonk me for that."

Eamonn replied that he wasn't offend, responding: "I'm not because you know I agree with you."

The debate occurred after an unnamed male doctor was brought before the General Medical Council after bosses found his patients' medical records.

He wrote of one patient: "Like me cos I didn't ridicule her for being a fat smoker- even though she is".
