If, like me, you’ve been bingeing the sick new Netflix series The Witcher in between your turkey and ham, er, binges, then I’m sure you’re as impressed as I am by Henry Cavill’s rig.

During his appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Cavill discussed the gruelling preparation that it took to achieve his hunky physique and it doesn’t sound like a whole lot of fun, TBH (certainly not as much as watching it, anyway).

“Diet is difficult, and you’re hungry, but when you’re dehydrating for three days you get to the point, on the last day, where you can smell water nearby,” Cavill told Norton.

“That CAN’T be good for you!” Graham responded, as anyone would.

“It’s not NO water for 3 days,” he clarified. “On the first day you’ll have a liter and a half, and the second day half a liter, and then the third day, no water, and you’ll shoot on the fourth [day].”

“…and the funeral is on the sixth day,” fellow guest Rob Brydon joked.

His efforts obviously paid off ‘coz not only does he look hot as fuck in the show, but the fantasy series has been a raging success.

The audience score stands at 93 percent, with the consensus being that Cavill “brings brawny charisma to a series teeming with subversive fantasy elements and dark humour,” according to Daily Mail’s findings.

Have a go at the trailer below then head on over to Netflix to catch the series while ya munch on your leftovers:
