Bradley Walsh health: How long has The Chase presenter battled 'time bomb' heart disease

Bradley Walsh will host a celebrity special of The Chase tonight which sees Ann Widdecombe, Sam Nixon and Mark Rhodes and Jimmy Carr go against the chaser to win money for their individual charities. But what has Bradley said of his health?

Bradley has opened up his heath as he has been warned he was at risk of dying from heart disease.

Talking to The Sun, Bradley spoke of how he felt like a “time bomb”.

Bradley said: “I was a time bomb. I produce too much cholesterol.

“It’s a silent killer. My heart guy said, ‘Look, Brad, you need to get fit’.”

“I thought, ‘Oh crikey, I’m gonna be bang in trouble here if I don’t lose the weight and start dealing with this’.

“I decided to get consciously stuck in. So, touch wood, I will be OK.”

Bradley opened up on putting weight on This Morning last month ahead of his milestone birthday.

Talking to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, Bradley said: “Next time you see me in real life, I’ve actually put a stone on.

“I hope someone comes up with some tips… I’m the heaviest I’ve ever been.

“I actually need to lose some weight a bit lively, I really do.”

The Chase Celebrity Special will air tonight on ITV at 6pm.
