BBC presenter Stephen Nolan has revealed he has hit his weight loss goal ahead of a planned US holiday in July.

The popular presenter weighed in at 22st and 8lbs in November last year, and in February set himself a target of getting below 15st before his trip to Los Angeles on July 2.

He has hit the gym intensively in the last few months in an attempt to shift the weight, regularly updating followers with his progress on social media.

On Tuesday morning Nolan weighed in at 14st 12lbs and said he was "delighted" to hit his target.

Following his success he has set a new target of getting below 14st by July 2.

The 'biggest show in the country' host has battled weight issues throughout his life and revealed that he would love to be able to run along Santa Monica beach during his upcoming trip.

"I'm delighted that I've hit my target one month ahead. Thanks for all your kind messages," Nolan wrote on Twitter.

On Tuesday's BBC Radio Ulster show Nolan took particular delight in revealing he was the same weight as his show's producer Vinny Hurrel.

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan congratulated his fellow broadcaster on the achievement.

Nolan has previously publicly documented his weight-loss attempts in TV shows including Food On The Brain and Biggest Diet In The Country.

In 2015 he put five stone back on after losing seven the previous year.

At that point he had dropped from 22st down to 15.2st.
