Did Paul Sinha Undergo Weightloss?
The year 2018 - Paul made a swift return to medicine, not as a practitioner, but as a subject of a weight loss experiment for ITV's show Fast Fix: Diabetes. The show is about finding whether weight loss controls blood sugar or not.
For that, Sinha’s body was ideally suited for the experiment as he had the previous experience of managing his body. It may sound funny but according to Paul himself, whenever he misbehaved, he gained weight, and whenever he behaved well, he lost weight.
The episode aired on June 13, 2018, and precisely, Paul was really seen making some progress. The show aired in May 2018 for which, Paul tried to maintain his body posture for over two or three months.
The show was mainly about finding if weight loss could control blood sugar level or not. The comedian was happy to help the cause.

Paul Sinha's Bio (Age): Ethnicity & Height
Supriya Kumar ‘Paul’ Sinha was born to Bengali parents on 28 May 1970 in Luton, Bedfordshire, UK. He derives an Asian(Indian) ethnicity from his parents. He posses an average height of 5 feet and 8 inches.
As for his academics, he completed his graduation from Dulwich College and St George's Hospital Medical School.
Like many celebs burying their personal life into the ground, Sinha as well has refrained away from unveiling his parental information.
Though keeping his parents’ identity off the hook on social media, Paul frequently moots them sarcastically on his social media status.
One such happening was on 21 May 2016 when Paul stated that his parents stayed in the UK because of the Sausages, which India never offered.
Besides, he recently tweeted the picture of his parents on 5 July 2018 captioning that his dad was rescued by NHS England from a ventricular fibrillation cardiac arrest 28 years ago.

However, he's not revealed their name as of yet.

If you don't know, he once mentioned about his parents on his Twitter, stating they would dance on the beats if their future daughter-in-law raked-off same ethnicity as theirs. He stated:
"If I ever married an Indian princess, my parents would never stop celebrating."
It's not uncommon for his parents, who originated from India, to desire a daughter-in-law who would possess similar ethnicity to theirs.
As Indians have been slowly moving away from their tradition of a close-knit combined family to more nuclear family, many Indian parents feel that they would lose their trademark family bonding to culture shocks, communication gaps, and cultural differences - if someone from a different culture is patched to their lineage.
Paul Sinha Came Out As Gay On National Television
The revelation of sexuality usually bombshells the media and the case was no different for the ITV trivia expert, Paul.
After he revealed his sexuality while answering a question fried by host Bradly Josh on a June 2017 episode of The Chase on ITV, the viewers bombarded the Twitter showcasing a sense of surprise that is rather likely in the celeb world.
Like many, one of the dazzled viewers jumped in the Twitter bandwagon and stated,
OMG IS THE SINNERMAN GAY? #TheChase
However, what led to his coming out of the closet was more surprising than the process itself - the moment he first closeted out as gay on national TV was perceived as one of the most offbase career moments for the otherwise smart and reputed trivia expert.
The Trivia Question That Made Paul Sinha To Come Out On The Chase
When host Josh queried whether his colleague knows the racing-game famous for throwing bananas and turtles, Paul was unaware but at least gave it a go, stating 'Grand Theft Auto' - the answer no one expected.
Following the quiz, Sinha, in an unlikely turn of events, built his defense and blamed his cold relationship for getting the answer wrong. He said,
"My ex used to play Mario Kart all the time... he also said I never paid attention to him."
Later, talking to American TV journalist Andy West for GuysLikeYou in June 2017, he said he had been referencing about his sexuality since ages just to let people know.
“I assumed everyone knew I was gay. I have been on the show six years and I have made lots of references to being gay. But they mysteriously never made the edit. There was one time that did make the edit when I was asked how many pieces was there to a bikini. Now you couldn’t ask a question more simple and out of my comfort zone. But I got it wrong.
Bradley looked at me at the end and said: 'Bikini?' And I said that question would fall to the only Chaser whose lifestyle choices means I don’t get to see a bikini.' So that was me coming out of the closet. I had gay on my Twitter feed for years.
We have carefully stage managed personas on the show. Maybe they didn’t want it to become a thing. You know, when we do those intros at the start of the show, ‘who is The Chaser today?’ Maybe they didn’t want it be ‘Is it going to be the Sinnerman, and he likes cock!"
Although the editors tried their best to protect his sexuality in the show, he ultimately came out in the show in public eyes, but for him, he had come out a long time ago.
He Dated Contestant Named Oliver From The Chase
In the same interview with GuysLikeYou in 2017, he revealed that he was dating fellow quizzer on chase whom we know as Oliver. However, he didn't expect marriage or kids from his open relationship with his fellow boyfriend.
To the interviewer, he said that he would rather respect his supportive parent's Hindu tradition and not get involved in gay marriage, although he supported it.
"Marriage is not for me either. I am passionately in support of it but it’s not for me. I couldn’t put my Hindu parents through the rigmarole of gay marriage, they have been so amazing and so great and so supportive – when I told them I had a boyfriend they were like ‘Thank the lord for that!'
I am happy with a boyfriend. We are in an open relationship, but can’t say more than that. One of the advantages of being gay is that there is no traditional template for how you are meant to engage with your partner. Hetero relationships are supposedly based on the idea of procreation and offering a loving environment for your children, therefore by definition would mean monogamy. Being gay we can make our own template that works for us.
“I don’t want kids, I don’t think my life is conducive to that level of responsibility. Good luck to anyone who wants kids. It’s just not for me and I’ve known that for a long time. Luckily my boyfriend agrees."
Marriage, kids, or committed relationship are not as important to him as the dimension of freedom in the relationship.
