Krishnan Guru-Murthy’s Remarkable Transformation for Strictly Come Dancing

Krishnan Guru-Murthy’s Weight Loss for Strictly

Renowned newsreader Krishnan Guru-Murthy recently disclosed that he underwent a significant transformation, losing two stone in preparation for his participation in Strictly Come Dancing.

The Channel 4 host, aged 53, embarked on this journey to enhance his health and vitality as he stepped into the high-energy world of the BBC competition show.

A New Challenge and a Health Awakening

Krishnan Guru-Murthy, who previously weighed nearly 15 stone, decided to take control of his health as he embraced the challenge of Strictly Come Dancing.

He expressed his motivation by saying, “Suddenly I felt it was time to say, ‘Sod it, why not?’ It was probably now or never.

The longer I waited, the less likely I’d physically be able to do it.”

A Genetic Heart Condition and a Daunting Question

The newsreader also revealed that he suffers from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a genetic heart condition that has tragically claimed the lives of two of his cousins.

This condition raised concerns about his ability to participate in a physically demanding show like Strictly Come Dancing.

He recalled asking his doctor a sobering question: “Will I drop dead live on the BBC?” The doctor’s response was not a definitive guarantee, which further fueled Krishnan’s determination to undertake this challenge.

Confronting Uncomfortable Truths

Approaching his 53rd birthday, Krishnan Guru-Murthy realized that his weight was a significant health concern.

He acknowledged that “no amount of great tailoring could hide the fact that 14st 11lb when you’re only 5ft 8in is far too much.”

The newsreader grappled with self-loathing when he looked in the mirror, and even his teenage son remarked on his weight.

Balancing Health Challenges with Strictly

Krishnan Guru-Murthy faces unique challenges due to his hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which restricts his ability to engage in intense training routines, especially those that elevate his heart rate significantly.

He is cautious about entering the “red zone” where individuals with his condition are at risk of sudden cardiac events.

Despite these limitations, he is determined to give his best on Strictly Come Dancing.

Support from Family and a Race Against Time

Krishnan Guru-Murthy’s decision to participate in Strictly has the full support of his wife, Lisa, who encouraged him to step out of his comfort zone.

Recognizing that his physical capabilities might diminish in the future, Krishnan seized the opportunity to challenge himself now.
