X Factor 2011: Craig Colton reveals weight loss secret!

Craig Colton X Factor

Having lost a stone in a week thanks to a crash diet, X Factor 2011 hopeful Craig Colton reveals the secret behind his dramatic weight loss in this week's Closer magazine. Thanks to mentor Gary Barlow and his personal chef, the Liverpudlian singer has been on a strict intake of fruit and veg.

The former biscuit factory worke told Closer magazine: “I’m having meals of 60 per cent cooked veg, 20 per cent meat and 20 per cent raw veg. I’ve never had so much energy!”

Craig says he’s such good pals with mentor Gary Barlow, they even exercise together. The 22 year old said: “He comes over to the house and takes me on jogs round the garden! It’s weird not doing a double-take at him anymore. Sometimes, my phone buzzes and I see the name ‘Gary Barlow’ and I’m like, ‘The one from Take That, right?’”

Closer is on sale now (Tuesday).
