MATT Lucas has revealed his incredible weight loss after transforming into Miley Cyrus for a hilarious new sketch.
The comedian, 48, and his former Little Britain partner David Walliams, 50, are reuniting as they team up for a Comic Relief segment.
The comedy duo are bringing back Rock Profile – a spoof interview show that saw them lampoon stars including Michael Jackson and Gary Barlow.
Thirteen years after its last episode, David and Matt are reviving it just for the annual charity special.
This time, the pair are going for pop stars Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga.
A recently revealed promo picture shows Matt ready to bare all in tight silver hot pants and the earrings to match as he pays homage to the Wrecking Ball singer.

Matt told Lorraine Kelly of his weight loss: "I've lost some weight, I needed to take the edge off, because I put on a lot of weight in lockdown.
"I've still got a bit of a tum, I've got a little bit of a tum, I'm not a skinny Minnie."
In the new sketch, David slips into the skin of Miley's country singer father, Billy Ray Cyrus.
"It’s been really fun giving the Rock Profile treatment to a host of stars who weren’t even twinkles in our eyes when we first did the show nearly 25 years ago", David said when questioned about the revival.

David added: "I can’t wait for everyone to see our brand-new characters."
While TV presenter Jamie Theakston was picked to play the role of the interviewer in Rock Profile's first two seasons, a new host is set to take his place for the reboot.
I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here star Vernon Kay will be part of the show.
"Thankfully I will be playing myself in Rock Profile, so I’ll be saving David or Matt the embarrassment of attempting my accent", he said.
David and Matt's reunion comes after numerous rifts left them not speaking to one another for years.
The pair reportedly got back in touch in 2019 after a decade of silence to work on Little Britain spin-off Little Brexit.
