The Former Towie Star Reveals He Lost Two Stone in Three Weeks
Joey Essex, known for his appearance on the reality show The Only Way Is Essex, has recently shared his remarkable weight loss journey after participating in the Australian version of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! last year. The 33-year-old star took to social media to reveal several unseen images from his time in the jungle, showcasing his slimmer physique.
Starring in I'm A Celeb Australia
Joey, who was reportedly the highest paid star on the show, spent three weeks in the jungle Down Under. However, he was voted out by the Australian public at the first opportunity. Despite his early exit, Joey managed to shed a staggering two stone during his time on the show, thanks to the limited portions of food provided.
Joey's Weight Loss Transformation
Sharing a topless picture of himself in the mirror of his hotel bathroom, Joey captioned the image with the words, "3 weeks later... Lost 2 stone. My first pic out of the Aussie jungle." The photo clearly shows the impressive results of his weight loss efforts.
Miss Universe Connection
During his jungle experience, Joey briefly caught the attention of Miss Universe winner Maria Thatill. The pair were seen engaging in a steamy embrace, but Maria later clarified in her exit interview that they were just friends and that the intense environment of the jungle had played a role in their interactions.
I'm A Celebrity UK
This was not Joey's first time appearing on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!. In 2013, he participated in the UK version of the show and finished in fourth place. It was Westlife singer Kian Egan who emerged as the winner that year.
Joey's weight loss journey serves as a testament to the physical challenges contestants face on reality shows like I'm A Celebrity. It's clear that his time in the Australian jungle had a significant impact on his body, and he has now proudly shared his transformation with his fans.
