I’m A Celebrity: Dennis Wise’s jaw-dropping weight loss

Given their often restrictive diet in the I’m A Celebrity jungle, it’s no surprise that the celebrity campmates often leave looking considerably svelter than they did on their arrival. 

And following reports this year’s camp have collectively lost SIX STONE between them already, Dennis Wise showcased his jaw-dropping weight loss as he became the sixth celebrity to leave the much-loved series on Thursday. 

The former footballer, 50, looked significantly thinner in his camp attire, having been forced to live on a restrictive diet mainly comprising of rice and beans during his 21-day stint in the jungle.

This year’s celebrities had to endure extremely tough conditions, as their first few days in camp saw them go a lengthy period without winning much food. Dennis had to endure five days without a proper meal in camp, while his pal Jamie Lomas suffered nine in total. 

His new diet has certainly taken its toll on the sports star, as Dennis showcased his shrinking frame while joining hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly in the studio, after being voted out by the public. 

Speaking of his physique, following his time in the jungle, Dennis said: ‘I’ve shredded so much weight, people don’t realise the rations you get – I mean they are rations!

‘And if you miss a group of stars, and if you don’t get any, you go for a whole day all the way through to the next night and it’s not nice and it’s really hardcore.’

Concerned about the lack of food being presented in camp, Dennis insisted that is why he had been tough on comedian Iain Lee, when it came to his co-star putting himself forward for the Bushtucker Trials. 

Iain had previously forfeited two trials, costing the camp their dinner on those occasions. Dennis, who had been accused of ‘bullying’ Iain due to his strong stance against him when it came to the challenges, argued that someone who is considered a ‘stronger option’ should have priority, as the camp’s main concern is eating at the end of the day.

‘It’s a huge diet change, but no one complains as for most it is the best detox diet.’

They added: ‘The celebrities lose the weight because they are eating healthy organic vegetables and meat, the body readily absorbs this so they make sure the meat is heavy in protein and the fruit and veg heavy in minerals, vitamins and glucose.’ 

Campmates are thought to lose around ’11 pounds’ each a series.
