I’m A Celeb stars’ staggering weight loss
I'm A Celeb contestant Yvie Jones provided one of this season's most emotional moments when she opted out of Sunday night's contestant weigh-in, fighting back tears as she opened up about her lifelong battle with an eating disorder.
Jones' fellow contestants applauded her bravery, but after her speech, the medic supervising the weigh-in was keen to emphasise the purpose of the exercise was not to celebrate or glamorise the "extreme diet" that is life as an I'm A Celeb contestant.
"This is not a celebration about your weight loss - it's to give an idea of the harsh conditions your bodies have been through these past four weeks," he told them.
First given the opportunity to guess how much weight they'd lost, most of the celebs wildly underestimated what four weeks subsisting on a diet of rice and beans and enduring tough physical challenges had done to their bodies.
Take a look at each contestant's weight loss below - it's clear the competition has taken a staggering toll on their bodies (gossip guru Richard Reid lost 12.5 per cent of his body weight, while model Justin Lacko lost 11 per cent). Also included: the weight loss tallies for those contestants eliminated earlier in the season, some of whom were in the jungle for mere days.
