He is known for his catchy tune It's Chico Time and his outgoing personality. But since his X Factor antics he's lost 'every penny', become a dad, and is now a fitness guru. It's been 15 years since X Factor star Chico first hit our screens with his larger than life personality and catchphrase: "It's Chico time". The Bridgend -born entertainer became known for his energetic performances — he did jump into Sharon Osbourne's pool while still holding the mic after all — and went on to make it to the live shows, eventually finishing in fifth place.

But the year-old has come a long way since his X Factor days. He's now devoted dad to year-old Lalla-Khiara and Zacharia, nine, and is more likely to be found at a meditation retreat than on stage. Now living in Hertfordshire, Chico is keen to inspire people across the globe to get involved with his new workout programme Block Fit, something he decided to try his hand at after losing his life savings five years ago and suffering a stroke in He said: "In I lost my life savings — every penny I had ever made.

I was thinking about what I could do next — I'm not the sort of person to sit and dwell. I love music and I love fitness and that's how I came up with Block Fit. It's a combination of combat, dance, and HIIT and there's a big emphasis on wellness. My philosophy is to get from A to B in the shortest time with maximum impact.

I've picked what works and got rid of the rest. I've also become more spiritually aware and that's is reflected in what I do.

Chico — whose real name is Yousseph Slimani — said he wanted to create a programme that was "complete" so even came up with the moves and created the music himself. There will be something like 50 classes over the weekend, some of which I'll give myself, and there will be a lot of entertainment and fun.

We have one coming up in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. I'm really excited about that because I'll be going back to Morocco, which is where my family is from. While building up a fitness empire is undoubtedly impressive it's even more so given that Chico suffered a life-threatening stroke less than two years ago. But despite the severity of his health scare he went on to make a full recovery — something he puts down to his positive mindset and family.

Talking of the stroke, he said: "I was driving in my car along and I was on the phone to my wife. I thought it was an awakening, a near-death experience. I could see my daughter but she was older — it was like I was looking into the future. I started to lose touch with reality. I'd never felt anything like it. I went to the hospital and it took a few days before it really hit me. It was tough — I didn't know if I would be able to perform again. I couldn't be more thankful for my family, my beautiful wife Daniyela and my children.

While Chico was born in Bridgend he spent much of his youth in Morocco where he worked on his father's farm as a goat herder. Most of his family still live in Morocco and it's where he began performing. But despite his upbringing abroad Chico said Wales still has a special place in his heart. He said: "I left Bridgend before I turned one so, unfortunately, I don't have any memories in Bridgend.

It feels like home — I feel the connection in my heart.

Many people assume that Chico is his given name but it's actually a nickname that only took hold when he was in his earlys and working as a topless model. He said: "It actually came about when I was a little. We knew this Spanish couple and they would call me Cheeky Chico. It wasn't something anyone else called me and I grew out of the name. I was modelling for what was essentially three and the photographer asked me for my name.

It's a pretty funny story. My family in Morocco still call me Yousseph though. Even though it's been more than a decade since he beat Madonna to one with It's Chico Time, the fitness guru said he still gets recognised by fans in the street. In a way my audience has grown with me which is incredible. When people see Chico they want to see Chico Time and I still love performing it. It will never get old for me. I'm Chico and I always will be that person. Keep up to date with the latest stories with our twice daily newsletter Invalid Something went wrong, please try again later.
