I’m A Celebrity campmate James McVey has opened up about how being in the jungle forced him to confront his relationship with food.
“The jungle diet pushed my body and mind to the absolute limit. I felt like I was wasting away.” he told The Mirror.
“I didn’t realise how much that had taken over my life and it still does play a big part now. It’s a constant battle to try to recognise that moderation is a good thing.” He continued.
However, James who previously suffered from an eating disorder is now working on regaining the 11lbs he shed in the jungle.
When speaking about his eating disorder before entering the jungle he expressed: "I was ill and I looked ill. I'm happy that now I've come full circle and see food as a positive."
Meanwhile, James has apparently reunited with King of the Jungle and pal Harry Redknapp to go engagement ring shopping for model girlfriend, Kirstie Brittain.
