Clegg, who drew criticism for piling on the pounds after entering Downing Street, revealed he felt compelled to shape up following a stern ticking off from fellow Lib Dem veteran Paddy Ashdown.

''Paddy Ashdown came into my office and said, 'you're fat!' He barked at me! He said, 'you've got to get thinner' with military demand, so I did!''
