‘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.
Setting goals: David has previously said he’s ‘aiming for 10 stone. I literally want to be dodging grids walking down the street!’
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.’
