However, besides its primary purpose of inducing weight loss, Ozempic can also be prescribed by a doctor to help patients who are struggling with obesity because of diabetes and thyroid conditions. Shaun acknowledges that some celebrities who have turned to Ozempic might have “a lot of body issues going on”.

However, for the Happy Mondays star, it’s proven to be a life-changer. He shared: “For me it’s great; I actually get a bit of energy from it so now we’re back to cycling.”
