From Gogglebox, to a popular ITV show, Stephen Webb's physical transformation now makes sense to his fans.

Gogglebox brought about a unique reality show concept when the reactions of different sets of people to popular TV shows were recorded. The BAFTA-winning series documents observations and reactions of viewers, as it sets the tone for a new age in reality television.

Among the people who rose to fame with Gogglebox, Stephen Webb, one of its original stars, has come a long way since he started his stint with Gogglebox 10 years ago. Today, Webb has undergone a transformation that makes him almost unrecognisable. Here’s everything you need to know about Stephen Webb’s transformation, his new career path, and what he has in store.

Stephen Webb’s transformation

Most stars go over a transformation in the span of a decade, some for the better and some unfortunately for the worse. Stephen Webb, however, is one of those stars who transformed for the better, as he entered a new chapter in his life. Showcasing a video on Instagram of himself before and after his workout regime, Webb gave his fans a sneak peek into his shredded body. He captioned the video by saying 'Back in the game’. He also said the following.

‘With a little help from my friends @alex__boito @drjefffoster who I’ll be chatting with next week about men’s health! Watch out for the video.’

Fans were in awe of the physical transformation undergone by Webb, as he sports well-defined muscles and a lower fat percentage. This video came soon after Stephen Webb made a big career announcement. Here’s what it is.

Webb says goodbye to Gogglebox

Stephen Webb has entertained the viewers of Gogglebox as an original cast member with his wit and humor. But after 10 years on the show, Stephen, along with his husband Daniel Lustig-Webb, announced their decision to leave the show, right before the new series came out. As per The Metro, the show creators Studio Lambert and Channel 4, made the announcement by saying the following.

‘After a brilliant and illustrious time on Gogglebox, Stephen and Daniel have decided that now is the right time to explore life beyond the sofa and leave the show.
‘We would like to thank him and Daniel for being utterly brilliant contributors to the show, and we wish them well with their future projects. As one of the original Goggleboxers, Stephen has entertained the nation with his hilarious quips since the show first started in 2013, sharing his opinions on the best and biggest TV events of the last 10 years.’

Their departure from the show was addressed by them in identical Instagram statements which said:

‘We feel the time is right to move on and explore other opportunities. We would both like to thank Channel 4 and Studio Lambert for letting us be part of this amazing, funny and heartwarming show.
‘We are also extremely thankful to the cast and crew, or Gogglebox family as we call them and of course the fans, thank you for all of your love & support over the years.’

The next move

While their exit from the popular reality show came as quite a shocker for fans, Webb is all set to embrace his next move. The TV personality/entertainer is all set to impress his audience by signing on for an ITV show. Webb is confirmed to have signed up for Dancing On Ice, as per The Metro. Dancing on Ice, the star-studded dance reality show hosted by Holly Willoughby saw Webb’s entry into it, just days after he quit Gogglebox.

Fans of the former Gogglebox star are excited to see him transition and venture into new shows that will showcase another set of talents. The intense training at the gym, and the toned body now make sense, as Dancing on Ice is known to be physically challenging for anyone who taken part in it.
