Love Island winner Jack Fincham says he’s slimmed down after being told he was almost clinically obese by a doctor.
The 27-year-old former stationary salesman told The Sun that he was left stunned when a doctor told him he was borderline obese just months after winning Love Island with then girlfriend Dani Dyer.
Tipping in at just below 16 stone, the 5ft 11 star said he was “shocked” at how quickly he’d gained weight.
“I was shocked to find my BMI was bordering on obese,” he told the tabloid.
Jack says he put on weight after moving in with Dani and that his new busy lifestyle saw him eating out and all but abandoning the gym.
“A lot of the weight gain is after I have moved out of my mum’s house. I find it a lot easier to get a takeaway or eat out because you can get too busy to sit down and make a meal. It’s the busy lifestyle that gets in the way,” he explained.
He added that he’d gorge on unhealthy snacks while on the go, especially Beef Space Raiders crisps.
But he says he’s already started losing weight due to an upcoming celebrity boxing match that requires a gruelling new workout regime.
“This isn’t about wanting to look a certain way or about looking like one of these muscle man, it’s about wanting to be fit and healthy and do my best possible in the ring,” he said.
Jack was one of the less ripped contestants on last year’s Love Island, and even admitted going in that he didn’t possess a “six-pack.”
Since winning Love Island last July, he’s had an on-and-off relationship with actress and fellow winner Dani Dyer – EastEnders actor Danny Dyer’s daughter.
He announced on his Instagram earlier this month that he’d officially broken up with Dani writing.
“There is no easy way to say this and it isn’t going to be an easy time but me and Dani are not in a relationship anymore,” he wrote.
“We will always care a lot for each other and have love for each other and I mean that from the bottom of my heart and I wish her nothing but happiness.”
