Big boy: Gregg Wallace shows off his belly while on holiday in Barbados, yesterday

He is supposed to judge how well a dish tastes by sampling a fork full of it.

But it looks like Gregg Wallace has been eating too many mains... and starters and desserts.

The 47-year-old MasterChef judge was enjoying a holiday break in Barbados with his wife Heidi when the effects of his love of food was spotted.

Wearing a pair of black shorts the former greengrocer waded in the water and looked like he had had one too many hot dinners yesterday.

The father-of-two once described himself as: 'The fat, bald bloke on Masterchef who likes pudding,' and judging from these pictures he is living up to his reputation.

Wallace was joined by his wife Heidi who at 17 years his junior was in considerably better shape.

Young love: Gregg's wife, Heidi, wore a polk-a-dot bikini to the beach but didn't go into the water

The 30-year-old wore a polka-dot two piece but didn't join her husband in the sea and instead stayed on the sandy beach sunbathing.

The couple met via Twitter when Heidi contacted Gregg and asked him if he knew he had been labelled a 'weird crush' in a magazine.

A charming Wallace replied: 'Ever visit London? Give me a call, I'll buy you lunch', which was swiftly followed by a date at the Baftas.

Fun in the sun: Heidi is 17 years younger than Gregg and met him via Twitter

Three months into their relationship Heidi handed in her notice at Ullswater Community College, near Carlisle, where she worked as head of biology.

She then moved in with the food guru, who is twice divorced, at his luxury home in Whitstable, Kent, and they married last year in a magazine deal estimated to be worth £60,000.
