He went on to say he is almost ‘too skinny’, and that fiancée Laura Byrne thinks it’s time for him to gain the weight back again since filming wrapped.

‘I’ve lost around 3kg. It’s almost too skinny now – Laura is like, ”OK, it’s time to put some weight on now!”’ he joked.

The hunky father-of-two went on to say he had ‘never trained harder’ for anything in his life.
