The I’m A Celebrity campmates have begun revealing the lengths of their weight loss as the series comes to an end, and Vernon Kay, Hollie Arnold and Russel Watson are among the stars who have shed the pounds.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! is almost at its end after the contestants have endured almost three weeks of physically challenging trials and tiny – if any – meals, meaning a lot of the celebrities have lost weight.
Paralympic athlete Hollie Arnold MBE was among the first celebrities to be voted out of the camp and she said on The Daily Drop her stomach “has shrunk so much.”
She said she even struggled to eat the treats she was met with after leaving the castle.
Russell Watson also lost a significant amount of weight and Vernon Kay was told by his co-stars he’s “wasting away”.
But how much weight have the celebrities lost while in I’m A Celebrity?
Every year the contestants look remarkably different in before and after photos and, despite being in a new location with a different cuisine to eat, the celebrities taking on the Welsh castle have still noticed a weight loss.
Hollie told Vick Hope on The Daily Drop she lost nearly a stone.
She said: “I’ve currently lost nearly a stone so I’m actually really happy. I also kind of feel bad as I feel like I’ve lost a bit of muscle mass too.”
However, she said she struggled to eat the delicious treats she was greeted with and felt sick after tucking into the likes of “fruit, chocolate and crisps.”
Russell Watson, who left the camp three days before the final, shed a whopping 20lbs – which is almost 1.5 stone.
Branding it ‘the castle diet’, Russell stood up to show just how loose his trousers are now on him.
Jordan North has even developed a six pack while in the castle, after co-star Shane Richie pointed it out to his campmates.
The radio host explained: “Well I workout every day, and I go to the gym and run.”
“But then you go straight to the pub,” Shane chimed in.
The campmates also pointed out that Vernon Kay looked even slimmer, saying he’s been “wasting away” in the camp.
