Find out who wants to put comedian Michael McIntyre on a diet

"I feel a bit weird about turning 40. It makes you feel like you've passed over on to the other side a bit," he told the Daily Mirror.

"And although I do feel more relaxed about things now than I used to, I have to make changes. I've let my fitness slide and the weight has gone back on."

Talking about his impending diet and clinic visit, he said: "My wife wants to send me to this clinic for a week where apparently you basically don't eat and s*** for seven days.

"Obviously they are going to frighten the life out of me and will tell me I'm fat and unhealthy, that if I carry on like this I'm going to die.

"But it's just one week out of my life. My wife is basically saying, 'Go away for a week and come back more attractive'."

He recently returned to BBC One with a new series of Michael McIntyre's Big Show.
