Evicted 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' contestant Dom Joly has revealed he lost 24lbs during his 15-day stint in the jungle
Dom Joly lost 24lbs on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.
The comedian was evicted from the reality TV show last night (02.12.10) and is astonished by the changes in his body after 15 days on a jungle diet.
He said on TV show 'This Morning': "I haven't seen my cheekbones since 1999. It's insane. It was like going on a forced bootcamp detox - but someone has paid you to do it. It wasn't pleasant, but it did it!
"I lost 24 lbs - that's two stone pretty much. I'm down two trouser sizes, two t-shirt sizes - it's amazing.
"I've been wandering around the pool at the hotel in just a little thong!"
After leaving the show yesterday, Dom - who joined the camp on day four - admitted he had considered quitting many times because he found jungle life so difficult.
He said: "I so nearly walked so many times. It was tougher than I expected, way tougher. I've watched this show so many times and you see people whining, and you think, 'Come on, get over it', but it is really hard."
