Michael Gove 'Trying To Drop Two Dress Sizes In Six Weeks', Says His Wife Sarah Vine

Posted: Updated:

Has Michael Gove been spending too much time with jogging-fan George Osborne?

In Wednesday's Times, the education secretary's wife Sarah Vine revealed he is taking the prospect of a 'new year, new you' very seriously, eschewing lounging on the sofa with Minstrels for early-morning work outs.

She writes Gove has been "lured by the prospect of 'dropping two dress sizes in six weeks'" - and we can only wait to see the results.

So how do all the men in the cabinet measure up? Other than prime minister David Cameron, who employs personal trainer Matt Roberts, the chancellor has also been spotted returning to Downing Street after an early morning run. Then there's communities secretary Eric Pickles, or as David Cameron calls him, "the big man on the side of the people".
