Weightloss secrets reveled: How we made Jamie MacDonald’s podcast

Jamie MacDonald, the comedian you might know better as That Funny Blind Guy, found out that during lockdown the devil does not, it turns out, make work for idle hands; he makes pies and pints. In the first eight weeks of the coronavirus crisis lockdown in the UK, Jamie ate and drank heartily and put on 10 kilograms. His mental health might have suffered too, but he was too drunk to notice. Deciding enough was enough, he enlisted the help of Fran and John of FSR Personal Training to get back on track. This podcast series charts his progress, from one weigh-in to the next. Along the way Jamie speaks to some of his comedian friends about life, lockdown and forced unemployment.
