What is Boris Johnson’s new health drive about?
The PM revealed he’s lost a stone and a half and is feeling “much better” after launching into a fresh health kick.
He rubbished “nonsense” claims he will quit in 6 months because of his ill-health from his battle with coronavirus.
Mr Johnson was given “oxygen treatment” and spent three days in intensive care with the nation on tenterhooks as to whether he would make it.
The PM said he was feeling “far better” than ever after losing 1.5 stone after a report claimed chief adviser Dominic Cummings’ father-in-law had told a journalist he would resign.
The PM has launched a fresh obesity drive to try and fight Britain’s bulge – with bans on advertising junk food and NHS partnerships with weightloss programmes like Weight Watchers.

What sort of exercises will Boris be doing with Harry?
A Downing Street source confirmed that Mr Johnson had hired the trainer.
It said: “Yes, he has engaged a personal trainer. I can confirm it is Harry Jameson. It’s because he is really serious about getting fit, as anyone who has seen him over the past couple of months knows, Boris is raring to go.”
Speaking to the BBC’s Fit & Fearless podcast in July 2019, Mr Jameson, said he seeks to help his clients “in ways beyond pumping weights in the gym”.
He says his approach has “always been based on a foundation of mind and body together and ultimately happiness”.
