We were surprised as Emmerdale's Adam Thomas when Joel first debuted those abs of his, but turns out Joel doesn't actually like putting them on show.

Making an appearance on ITV's Lorraine ahead of the I'm A Celeb wrap party, Joel insisted he would have kept his clothes firmly on, if he hadn't had to shower.

When Lorraine Kelly asked if it was hard work maintaining his muscles, Joel joked: "It's amazing what you can do when you have lots of time on your hands, plus loneliness, plus the gym every day and steak."

He then added: "I've never really shown [my body] off before, I just tend to wear baggy clothes and keep it a secret."

Speaking about his time on I'm A Celebrity, Joel added: "The best thing was just having time to think. You don't have a phone, there's no distractions. You just sit there and you think about all the people you love... the people you hate. It's great."

"I've cut so many people out of my life," he quipped.

Joel also revealed exactly what he has been up to since leaving the jungle. He said: "I've literally eaten two cheesecakes, I'm not even talking slices mate, a huge cheesecake. I had steak and chips. I had a shower, got dressed, and then I got back into the shower again."

Joel finished in second place on I'm A Celebrity. Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt was crowned the winner of the series and the new Queen of the jungle.

Following the result, Scarlett told hosts Ant and Dec: "I wish I could do it all again. It was just amazing. It was unreal. It's exceeded [my expectations] beyond anything I ever thought. I've never felt so happy, which is weird because I hate camping."
