The Ibiza Weekender rep, 27, told Thursday night’s Access All Areas on FUBAR Radio, that he has shed the weight to feel healthier.

‘And then I went on holiday to Greece for two weeks and then I put like four pounds back on but I’ve still lost like over two stone.’
Detailing how he’s gone about it, he explained: ‘It’s called Xante the company I’m working with.
‘It’s just basically a calorie deficit diet and then I’m also doing my personal training sessions as well with my PT who’s amazing, puts me through my paces.
‘I’m literally sat in the car park like nearly throwing up for an hour, literally after every session.’

Discussing the reason for shredding the weight, David said: ‘I’m just kind of like wanting to lose weight and just be a healthier person… I want to look nicer in myself.
‘I don’t look in the mirror and think that I look disgusting, I just think I want a healthier lifestyle.’
He continued: ‘Being overweight obviously isn’t healthy. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with it.
‘There definitely isn’t because I’ve been very overweight for such a long time now, but I just want my body to genuinely be healthier.
‘I’m aiming for 10 stone. I literally want to be dodging grids walking down the street!’

David gained fame on ITV2’s raucous fly-on-the-wall series about partygoers seeking fun in the sun of Ibiza.
He has also appeared on Celebs Go Dating where he continued his search to find a man.
He shared how he copes with homophobia – of which he has been a victim.
‘I’m quite hard faced really and I don’t really care what people think. What you see is what you get. I guess in this industry for a lot of people it can be quite difficult with trolling and abuse in the street and stuff like that,’ he said.
‘I’m kind of like really, don’t really care what you think, this is who I am, like it or lump it kind of thing. If you don’t like what you see then swivel! I mean I’m not bothered.’
David did admit that it’s not always easy to brush the comments off: ‘There has been a couple of times where it’s kind of affected me where it’s been like really, really bad, but then I just think, what you honestly think I’m gonna let you change my life? Absolutely not. What you see is what you get, end of.’
