‘How has that happened?!’ I’m A Celebrity’s Owen Warner admits to ONE STONE weight gain from scoffing chips and hash browns – just over a week after leaving the jungle
I’m A Celebrity’s Owen Warner has confessed he’s put over a stone in weight following his departure from the jungle just over a week ago.
The Hollyoaks star, 23, took to Instagram on Thursday to record himself using some scales, in which he learned he’d gained 7kg (1.1st) already.
He then admitted the increase in his body mass has come from his love of chips and hash browns, large portions of which he’s been scoffing while filming the soap.
Owen told his fans: ‘So when I left the jungle, I think I left at 78.5kg. Now we’re back for just over a week, I thought I’d buy myself some scales.
‘I’ve not done this yet, I’ve not weighed myself, I thought I’d see what I’m weighing.’
Zooming in on the 85.5kg reading, the flabbergasted actor asked: ‘How have I put on 7kg already?! I need to slow down, I’ve been eating way too much.’
Owen didn’t share a photo of his changed physique, however the toned star impressed viewers with his ripped torso while on the ITV reality star – where campmates mostly ate rice and beans and a daily portion of meat.
It comes after Owen revealed the tough times he endured in the jungle, admitting he was wrong to believe he would ‘breeze’ the challenge.
He told MailOnline he was confident going into the show because he hoped his high level of fitness would help to support his time in camp.
But after growing homesick and facing low points as a result of not eating properly, which Owen struggled with the most out of his campmates, he quickly realised the jungle wasn’t an easy feat.
When asked about his toughest moment in camp, Owen replied: ‘Which one? It was amazing in there, but it was very, very, hard.
‘I went into it with the mentality that I was going to breeze it. I thought, I’m an athletic geezer, I can do the challenges, I didn’t think about the food that much, and I didn’t think about the missing the family aspect.’
