On May 22, 2023, Razor Ruddock took to Twitter to thank followers for their support during his weight loss journey, showing off his miraculous physique change pictures. Since then, he has appeared on popular television programs such as I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, Celebrity MasterChef, and Harry's Heroes.
Later, Razor Ruddock spoke at length about his weight loss journey on May 23, shortly after making a veiled dig at Liverpool's rivals. And, speaking on talkSPORT after Liverpool's 7-0 thrashing of Manchester United at the weekend, he stated,
It's a coincidence that I heard (reports saying) that I had lost seven stone on Sunday. Seven was a good number on Sunday! Obviously we did Harry's Heroes four years ago and I found out my heart problem, so I wanted to get fit. I got a pacemaker fitted and I was going to get fit, but then Covid hit and I became a lazy slob, sat at home listening to you lot and watching Bargain Hunt. I'm an expert on antiques now, let me tell you! I just got lazier and lazier, my health got embarrassing. I couldn't move, didn't want to go out and couldn't get anything to fit me.

In March, Ruddock told MailOnline exclusively that reality TV personality James Argent, who had gastric sleeve surgery in 2021 and then had a spectacular transformation, motivated him to make a shift. And recently, the former center-half once more credited Argent with inspiring him to lose seven stone, saying,
I met James Argent from The Only Way is Essex at a charity football match..He'd had the gastric sleeve operation and lost about 13 or 14 stone. So I thought, that's it. I've got to do something now, get this under control. I went to the doctor with bad ankles, bad knees. He told me to get in the gym but I was saying "I can't, my ankles and knees are too bad". Get on the bike, I can't. Swim, I can't, everything hurts.
However, as soon as he continued to lose weight, he could get in the gym. He also stated that he could do what the doctors and physios were telling him because he can run around now. He can get on a bike. He can walk up hills and play golf without the buggy. But the most important thing is that His head is now in the best place. Ruddock then added,
I called it bad, sad, glad, mad syndrome. If I was mad, I'd have a drink and eat. If I was glad and happy, I'd drink and eat. So whatever emotion I had, my excuse was to eat and drink to get me out of that emotion. And the next day I'd feel bad so what did I do? Eat and drink again. It was a cycle and a routine I couldn't get out of, but now I'm out of it, I'm perfect.
