Jack said….”I want people to see the side of me where they go: ‘Oh my God, look, he’s a professional athlete.”

He was branded “obese” by doctors in January 2019 just six months after leaving the Love Island villa – and went on an amazing health kick shedding two stone this year.

Jack recently shared two topless snaps on his Instagram story, telling fans the first was taken in “week 1” and the second in “week 2” after he embarked on a fitness regime.
