The 'Allo 'Allo star dropped in to Century 21 Cameron Adams, Leytonstone to witness Hasan Younis weigh in at 27st 6lbs, much of which he hopes to shed in the coming weeks.

Hasan, 42, is raising cash for Barnardo's by asking colleagues, family, friends, clients and members of the public to donate £1 for every 1lb he loses between now and July 31.

The father or four is observing Ramadam and hopes to lose as much weight as possible before the fasting month ends on July 18.  His challenge will then continue until the end of the month.

Hasan is a co-director of the Century 21 branch with his brohter Kamran, who said:

'Hasan needs to do this for his kids so that he's fit and healthy and can enjoy life with them. Hasan and Kamran have pledged to match however much is raised for Barnardo's in sponsorship.'

Vicki, who endured three weeks of hunger and discomfort in the jungle during last year's series of I'm a Celebrity, said:

'It's fantastic that Hasan has taken on this challenge so he can make sure he is in good shape for his own children while also raising money for Barnardo's.'

'I'd encourage anyone who admires what Hasan is doing to sign up as a sponsor and help change the lives of the UK's most vulnerable children and young people.''

Sponsors can also drop in to Century 21 at 30 Church Lane, Leytonstone, or contact community fundraising manager Lucy Clements on 020 8279 5990 or at lucy.clements@barnardos.org.uk.
