I’m A Celebrity’s Vernon Kay says he can’t eat as stomach has ‘totally shrunk’ after 30lbs weight loss in the castle


I’M A Celebrity’s Vernon Kay has revealed his stomach has “totally shrunk” after his 30lbs weight loss in the castle.

The TV star, 46, is trying to build back to his pre-show size after three weeks of living off rice and beans.

Vernon reunited with wife Tess Daly yesterday in a smiley selfie, and BBC Breakfast host Dan Walker asked him: “What did you have for tea?”

The former Family Fortunes star replied: “Could only manage a little…stomach has totally shrunk!!”

It left some of his fans wishing they could escape to a castle for three weeks to achieve similar results.

Strictly Come Dancing host Tess has got all of Vernon’s favourite foods ready after he told her he’d lost over two stone while he’s been away.

“Vern told me he’s lost 30lb in weight!” she wrote on Instagram.

“So I’ve been shopping to get some of his fave foods ready for his return… mostly meat, chocolate and of course his favourite Yorkshire Tea bags.”

TV presenter Vernon, who stands at six foot four inches, was considerably more svelte than when he entered Gwrych Castle last month.

Vernon suffered from the paltry meals in camp and not-surprisingly lost weight in the three weeks he spent in the castle.

Tess paid a heartfelt tribute to her I’m A Celeb finalist husband insisting “he’s a winner to me”.

The presenter, 46, came in third place during the live finale and told host Ant and Dec that he’d achieved his goal of “making his girls” proud.

As Vernon was announced runner up in the show in third place, his wife posted a loving message to her beau, declaring: “He’s made us beyond proud!”

I’m A Celebrity took place this year in Gwrych Castle in North Wales for the first time due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Vernon, Jordan North, 30, and eventual winner Giovanna Fletcher, 35, ended up being the final three contestants all vying for the crown.
