The star added blueberries and spinach to his blender, along with some Rude Health milk.

But then he added something a little less expected, which he captioned: "Secret ingredient!!"

The item in question was a product called Absolute Collagen, which is designed to help the hair, skin, nails and joints.

Gary has been focused on his health since losing weight after his first experience of fame.

Gary showed off his weight loss on Instagram

"I remember one particular day just thinking: 'How have I got here?' I was just so disappointed with myself."

The 50-year-old revealed he then overhauled his diet completely, cutting out the foods that weren't helping his health.

Gary said: "I turned my brain on to sorting out what I ate. The trouble is the food I love - Chinese, chips, crisps.

"They were giving me a couple of minutes of a food coma, taking me out of the real world. It's just not good, that."

He went on: "So I decided not to have cheat days, and just stay away from those foods.

"I'd love to have the odd cigarette now and then but I can't. I can't start smoking again."

Gary then recommended a simple tip for anyone who wanted to follow in his footsteps.

"Do a food diary for every day and look down and you'll see what you're doing wrong," he said.
