James Corden unveiled as new face of Weight Watchers saying he's 'fed up' with how he looks

JAMES Corden has been signed up as the face of WW – the new name for Weight Watchers.

The Gavin & Stacey actor, a star of late-night TV in America, told fans he was "sick and tired" of failing to lose weight every year – saying it was making him sad.

The 42-year-old explained: "I want to change the way that I live. I want to be better for my children and for my family."

Late Late Show host James vowed to lose weight on the WW programme, joining stars including pop star Robbie Williams who have promoted the product.

In an at-times emotional video recorded for the weight-loss giant he admitted he'd spent more than a decade trying and failing to slim down.

He said: "I've realised that every year for the past decade – probably even 15 years – on January the 1st I've told myself and anyone that would listen that I'm going on a diet, I'm going to lose a load of weight.

"I'm fed up with the way I look, I'm fed up with being unhealthy, this is the year I'm doing it.

"Because of that, over Christmas I've eaten everything that's in the fridge because in my head in January I'm starting this diet and ti'll be a success. And as you can see it hasn't.

"It's starting to get me down in a way. I've never been able to stick to anything like that.

"I've spent a long time accepting that this is my body and that's it. But I really am sick and tired of just doing the same thing every year.

"I contacted the people at WW and I said: 'Look, can you help me with this? Why does this keep not working for me?'

"They told me that what I'm probably doing wrong is that I'm going on a diet and that is probably not the answer.

"They said: 'If you stick with our regime, which is more about wellness and health and feeling better rather than lose a load of weight this can absolutely work.'"

He added: "I don't want to wake up tired, or feel embarrassed when I'm chasing my son on the soccer field and out of breath after three minutes."
