Jake Quickenden put his topless selfies on hold after his stint in the Australian jungle last year rocked his body confidence.

If we were Jake, we'd probably never stop gazing at our own gym-honed reflection in the mirror. But the 27-year-old has revealed that after losing a dramatic amount of weight in the I'm A Celebrity camp last year, he 'hated' the way he looked.

Jake was runner up in the 2014 competition, so he lived off a basic diet of rice, beans and cockroaches for longer than most his rivals, and that's not a substantial diet if you want to keep in shape.

"I lost a hell of a lot of weight in the jungle, especially in the last week," he told FEMAIL. "I really gave the tasks my all but the heat and the energy every little activity took eventually started to take its toll.

"I didn't have much body fat to start, so it looked pretty shocking. I didn't like it. I hated looking in the mirror." he said.

Well thanks to getting a few fitness tips off Freddie Flinoff (casual), Jake has regained his six-pack and now scoffs down peanut butter on toast whilst watching Lady C and the rest of the current jungle bound celebs chewing on ants.

He's also got over the whole 'fear of the mirror' thing and is back to sharing topless, post-gym seflies with fans on Instagram. Jake told Reveal in the past that he's more interested in feeling healthy than looking good, and explained he wanted a buff physique so he looked good for his 2016 calendar shoot, saying: "I think a calendar on your wall with a pot belly isn't going to be that good!"

We'd still buy it!
