Ryan Thomas strips to underwear to show huge weight-loss

On Tuesday, his girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh caused a stir on Instagram, when she shared a shot of her dramatic weight-loss from her stint on Celebrity Island.

And that same day, hours before the show’s season finale aired, it was Ryan Thomas’ turn to unveil the results of his stint on Bear Grylls’ gruelling survival programme where he met his new belle, as he displayed his own lighter frame.

Following Lucy’s lead, the 33-year-old actor posted before and after shots of himself on his own Instagram account, posing in a pair of black boxer briefs as he showed off his taut abs and leaner body.

 

Before and after: Ryan Thomas took to Instagram to share a shot of his dramatic weight-loss from his time on Celebrity Island 

Captioning the image, he wrote: ‘The journey we’ve been on is indescribable. Not even a television show can put into perspective how mentally and physically we got tested on this island.

‘My before and after is an example of the lack of food, 8 days no eating trying to survive with so little energy. I’m extremely proud of myself and my fellow islander. Couldn’t have done it without you guys.

‘The reason I love this show so much is because unlike any other there is no winner, it is a matter of survival and not about competing against each other.’

His post came after health and fitness guru Lucy, 26, admitted she lost an eye-popping two stone while filming the tough programme earlier in the year.

Despite the gain, she admitted she wound up losing closer to two stone – leading to her dramatically slimmed down figure on her already slender frame. 

Taking to Instagram to share a before and after shot in the same bikini and same pose, the businesswoman displayed the vast difference in her shape before revealing she had taken just three weeks to regain the two stone she lost. 

She penned: ‘My poor little body!!!! So emotional watching the last ep of #celebrityisland .. I can’t believe we did it.. I can’t believe I did it what an experience! I will never doubt myself ever again!!

Lucy, meanwhile, has spoken about her weight loss to The Mirror and revealed: ‘I was told you should get used to eating less and less but then the I was told: “No, no, no you need to put on some weight.” So I put on half a stone.

‘It was weird because when you’re there you don’t really feel as thin as you are because you don’t have a mirror so you don’t really know how tiny you are and then you get back and you realise.

‘I must admit it was really nice to indulge. I put on all the weight in three weeks and the doctor was like: “Wow that is some serious eating”‘.
