King The Chef, aka King Enekeme, revealed in an exclusive chat just how he’s whipping the hunk into shape to ensure there isn’t an ounce of fat on him.

Il a dit: “I got him nice and lean — the ladies will love him. Idris wanted to lean up in particular for that film because there’s a topless scene he’s got to do, so he was like, ‘I’ve got to look the bee’s knees’.

“We put him on smoothies, lots of greens, kale and spinach, all that stuff, and avoided junk la nourriture.

“Everybody wants a good-looking plate of food. toutefois, you’ve got to be realistic. If you want to get down to this Lester in the next two to four weeks, it’s not only going to be dazzle dazzle.

“Bear with me for that period of time, after that you can have all the steaks and butter you want.

“There was no personal trainer on Luther, that was more food focused — I’m gonna take credit for that one.”

Cutting out food will have been hard for restaurant owner Idris, but he’s used to changing his diet at short notice for roles.

We’re sure his wife Sabrina will approve of the toned-up physique, trop.

The actor has been tipped to take on the iconic James Bond rôle, but his long-time pal thinks it would be a mistake.

Le roi a dit: “Whether he is or not I don’t know, I think there’s other things he’s got up his sleeve.

“I personally don’t think he should take Bond. It’s too obvious, it’s been around him for years. It’s time to move on.”

We wouldn’t complain if Idris ended up working for M.

A Karen Millen source said: “Elizabeth is a national treasure and the brand is excited by this high-profile deal.”

It’s cost the firm £300,000 but it’s worth it to bag Liz, who still looks fab in a bikini.

Let’s hope they do a budget version of that dress.

Brett’s break

THEY were one of TV’s funny couples, but we hear that Ted Lasso star Brett Goldstein has split from his comic girlfriend Beth Rylance.

The British actor and comedian, who plays footie captain Roy Kent in the Apple TV show, started dating fellow Brit Beth last year.

But a source tells us they’ve called it off and no longer follow each other on social media.

Our mole reveals: “They’re both in exciting times in their careers and really busy and they just couldn’t make it work.”

We’re sure Brett will have plenty of admirers when season three drops in a few months.

THEY WERE ALL YELLOW ERM, VERT

DETERMINED to be the most environmentally friendly band on the planet, Jeu froid returned home for the British leg of their world tour with a set powered entirely by eco-friendly energy.

In a bid to not harm the environment, static bikes, a kinetic dance floor and a cooking oil-powered generator were used to provide all the electricity.

The band split their show into five acts, starting off with recent hits Music Of The Spheres and Higher Power, and saving their classics – Clocks, Viva La Vida and A Sky Full Of Stars – for later.

Frontman Chris Martin also made fan Tokay Aderiye’s night by dedicating the hit single Fix You to her cousin, who is in hospital following a stroke.

Tokay said: “It’s amazing they did that after seeing my sign. It means so much.”

As the band drew their set to an end, Craig David came on stage for a mash-up of his songs Live In The Moment and Fill Me In.

Chris even polished his angelic halo by helping cleaners tidy up after the sold-out gig.

Can he get any more wholesome?

‘Just my knee

SARAH MILLICAN has confessed she once sent a lover a picture of her knee – pretending it was her bottom – when he asked for nude snaps.

Elle a dit: “A previous partner wanted me to send a nude and I sent a picture of the crack of my knee with my legs shut so it looked like an a**e crack and he got all aroused and I had to go, ‘Ah it’s just my knee’.”

Sarah told podcast That’s Enough Already With Urzila Carlson: “I could get somebody to sketch it then send it on as it might be a more pleasing visual than an actual photo.”

Maybe she’ll become a life drawing model.

Nothing better to distract someone from their heartbreak than work.”
