Former Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg has revealed he was once called fat and told to lose weight by colleague Lord Paddy Ashdown.
The ex Deputy PM was on the show to discuss his new memoir, Politics: Between the Extremes, in which he opens up for the first time about the highs and lows of his political career, including the collapse of the Lib Dems.
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!''
