In his caption, the I’m A Celebrity winner joked that he’s slowing becoming a ‘Spanish gladiator’ as he gets into shape.   

‘And I say from a big 118kg big boy to a healthier version on myself is a massive change, not quite the six pack but a hell of a smile,’ Miguel said.

‘Don’t try to be like that people you see in social media, they [are] not even real and definitely don’t smile like this.’
