Fans of the reality television show “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!” will have come to know Melanie Sykes very well but for others Melanie Sykes is looking slimmer than ever before thanks to dramatic weight loss.
Melanie Sykes may not have been crowned queen of the Jungle, Carl Fogarty took the title this year, however she is now grabbing the headlines for her very slim appearance.
The TV star told the Daily mail that while she was thrilled to have taken part in the show she was not so happy about her dramatic weight loss.
Melanie Sykes said: ‘I lost a stone in the jungle. I’m not happy about it. I just saw myself in the mirror after I got out of the shower and I don’t look good naked.”
For some people, going onto the show is all about helping them to lose weight, as was the case of Gemma Collins from TOWIE but for Melanie Sykes the weight loss was not welcomed.
Luckily for Melanie Christmas is just around the corner and she is going to put some of the pounds she lost in the jungle back on over the festive period.
Melanie Sykes told the Daily Mail: ‘It’s Christmas, so I’m just going to build on the weight again over the festive season. A stone is ridiculous for me.”
She added: ‘I could feel it in my face. And I could see it in my face, but you only have a little mirror in the jungle, so you don’t see your full body at any time.
‘I didn’t realise quite how thin I’d got until I saw myself just now – and it is not nice. I’ll build up, though.’
Melanie Sykes added: ‘I’m feeling great. I’ve had a shower and I’ve got my dress on, so I feel alright.’
Melanie Sykes and the other contestants on the show all lost weight thanks to only being fed a diet of rice and beans but since she has left the jungle she has already been eating normally again.
‘I’ve eaten from the mini bar. I’m about to have a proper meal. I’m going to have a steak in a minute. I can’t wait.’
While food is clearly on the mind of Melanie Sykes, getting back to the gym right away was not a priority.
‘I won’t be back in the gym next week. I am too weak. I lost a stone. Before I went in the jungle, I spoke to someone who knows about all that.
‘I can get back in gym in the new year. I am too weak right now. I am a stone lighter, which is daft.
‘I do feel weak. I won’t be bothering with the gym for a bit. I just want to eat nice food and be with my loved ones. That’s all I care about at the minute.’
