Blue star Antony Costa admitted he was on the controversial Atkins diet to help him lose weight after ”fat” jibes hit his confidence. ”In this business, everyone wants to take the piss out of you and say ‘you’re fat’ or ‘you’re the fat one in the band,” Costa tells The Glasgow Daily Record. “But I wanted to prove that I can lose weight and do it myself. I know I’m not perfect. I ain’t got a six-pack body and I don’t want one. I’m a singer and my look is my look.” So far, Costa has shed about 15 lbs.
