Sir John Curtice wasn’t exactly an overweight person. He looked like an average old man of normal weight. He seemed fine which is to say he didn’t look like he had any severe health issues. But people are not sure about that anymore with how he has been looking in the last few months. And they are concerned about him which has taken away all the interest from his election predictions. His weight loss certainly does not look healthy at all. The more he started to look lean, the more he started to look sick.

Sir John Curtice used to look very plump in the cheeks area but now, his cheeks look very hollow as if he had a buccal fat removal. Except he didn’t get any such procedure, he just had a weight loss. His face has thinned so much it doesn’t suit him like that when earlier, he used to look comparatively fuller in the face and seemed much healthier. Now, things have changed.

Besides, it’s not just Sir John Curtice’s face. It’s his whole body. He used to be potbellied before but now, after the weight loss, he is all thin. His followers are starting to get worried that he might be suffering from some sort of illness because he looks so sickly, lean, and frail. However, if he has some illness, he has not spoken up about it. So far, he has not acknowledged fans’ concern over his weight loss.

As a child, he attended Truro School and on completion of his schooling, he went to Magdalen College in Oxford where he began to develop an interest in political science. While he was in college, he read politics, philosophy, and economics, and learned about them thoroughly. He later transferred to Nuffield College as a postgraduate where he learned even more.

Everything he had studied and learned while he was in college guided him to a career in political advisory career. He currently is the president of the British Polling Council and also serves as the vice-chair of the Economic and Social Data Service’s Advisory Committee. Not to mention, he also happens to be one of the members of the editorial board of the Journal of Elections, the Executive Committee of the British Politics Section of the American Political Science Association, and the Policy Advisory Committee of the Institute for Public Policy Research.

Because of his predictions of election results and analysis of political events, he has garnered a strong following on social media. He was mentioned a lot on Twitter during the 2017 election. Though he has noted that he is not very fond of attention and has said that he has no wish to become a media celebrity, I don’t think it is up to him now. His political science has gotten him a lot of popularity in the United Kingdom.
