I’m A Celeb’s James McVey is doing his best to regain the 11lbs he shed in the jungle and he has already put on a couple of pounds.
But the Vamps star admits his time on the show forced him to confront his negative relationship with food.
The 24-year-old tells the Mirror: “The jungle diet pushed my body and mind to the absolute limit. I felt like I was wasting away.
“The contrast between my body before and after has taught me a lot. It’s made me recognise that years ago I had a problem.
“About five years ago it dictated my life. I didn’t want to go out for meals because I didn’t want to eat food I couldn’t control.
“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.”
This week James was reuniting with King of the Jungle Harry Redknapp, 71, at his home in Dorset.
Harry was set to take him ring shopping so he can pop the question to his girlfriend, model Kirstie Brittain.
