Love Island’s Curtis Pritchard has reportedly been unveiled as the new face of Weight Watchers, following his time in the villa.
The 23-year-old previously opened up about putting on two stone while appearing on the ITV2 dating show.
And he is ‘hoping to get a six-pack again’ by following in the footsteps of Robbie Williams and Kate Hudson, by using the slimming company’s healthy eating plan.
An insider revealed that Maura Higgins’ beau is ‘delighted’ with the deal.
‘Curtis is delighted with the deal and can’t wait to get started on the healthy recipes,’ they told the Sun.
‘He wants to feel confident in his swimwear again and get a six-pack again like his brother AJ.’
Curtis opened up about his weight after leaving Love Island, explaining he gained around two stone because he was ‘enjoying himself’ too much in the villa.
Well, it is basically a free holiday.
‘I gained around two stone. I enjoyed myself in the villa and I didn’t exercise a lot,’ he explained to the publication.
‘I liked to treat myself every now and again with food. I’m hoping to start training again soon. I find it good, physically and mentally. I need to sort my diet out, that’s the main thing.’
And the professional dancer admitted he would be chasing brother – and Strictly Come Dancing favourite – AJ Pritchard for some tips on how to tone up.
‘You can work out but if you don’t have a meal plan with a decent diet you’ve got no chance,’ he continued.
‘Hopefully AJ will give me some tips on getting a six-pack back.’
But AJ might want to hold off on those tips, after Curtis hinted he would be keen to join him on the Strictly dancefloor.
Speaking exclusively to Metro.co.uk, the Dancing With The Stars pro told us: ‘If it came up then, depending on the time, perhaps I wouldn’t say no to it.
‘You know, dancing is something I love to do. It’s not a little hobby, it’s in my blood. My dad was a dancer, my brother is, I am. We’ve all done it so much and I wouldn’t say no to it.
‘Perhaps if the opportunity came at the right time, [then] yes.’
But the ITV2 star admitted the pair are ‘very competitive’ with each other, which could add another layer to Strictly Come Dancing…
‘The fact that I’m working with my brother now, I’m going on tour with him next year, it’s a dream come true,’ he added.
‘We are rivals in our dancing, and we are very, very competitive against each other.
‘But we always have each other’s back, we’ll always protect each other, and we do love each other.’
Bring it on!
