Nick Knowles reveals dramatic TWO STONE weight loss in I’m A Celeb as he apologises for wearing budgie smugglers

NICK Knowles has revealed he lost more than two stone during his I’m A Celebrity stint.

The DIY SOS host was booted out the jungle last night, narrowly missing out on a place in the final.

Speaking on This Morning today, Nick showed off his impressive weight loss, saying he lost 2.2 stone in 19 days.

He also publicly apologised for wearing budgie smugglers to collect water for camp, which caused quite a stir with viewers.

Nick told Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford said: “I hadn’t watched a great deal of the show, but my family are fans of it.

“I didn’t have great expectations of it. I thought that because I’d done a lot of wildlife stuff in Africa and India I’d be able to handle living outside and doing all the bits.

“But the bits you don’t see on the programme are actually the things that wear you out.

“You have to go all the way down to the bottom of a very steep hill to get wood for the fire, which you have to do about ten times a day.

“You also have to bring the water up the hill, 30 kilos worth when it’s full, then you’re going off doing trials with such little food.

“To give you an idea, I was in there something like 19 days and I’ve lost 14 kilos.”

Eamonn then joked he would be signing up next year – alongside his wife Ruth – after they both looked impressed by how much they weight he lost.
