With an overwhelming feeling of pride in his appearance, Spencer Matthews has taken to Instagram to show off his stunning body transformation.
With an overwhelming desire to put his "Dad Bod" in the rearview mirror, the 34-year-old has hit the gym and achieved tremendous results.
The icon, who built a reputation as the Made In Chelsea bad boy, smiled from ear to ear as he exhibited his chiselled abs in a series of snaps.

In a candid post, Matthews opened up on his reasons behind the lifestyle change, hoping that others can use his tale to inspire themselves to start looking after their health.
The reality TV star said: "In the picture on the left, my life was spiralling out of control. It was during Made In Chelsea, and I had a drinking problem. I would drink to excess almost daily and had a deluded sense of grandeur. I was uncomfortable in my own skin, and change felt like too much of an effort.
"I thought that because I was a prominent character on a popular TV show that things would just happen for me, not realising that any kind of real success only comes through hard graft and determination.
"I had no routine, no motivation, no drive and no plan.
"My unsustainable appetite for socialising became detrimental to my health and wellness.
"On the right, 10 years later, I’ve embraced a different lifestyle and have self-discipline and a purpose. I’ve been training religiously, weightlifting three times a week, running, not drinking and being mindful of my health."
He added: "A routine, clear plan and consistency is important. Your goals won’t achieve themselves. I used to be out of breath walking up a single flight of stairs."
The emotional post prompted a hugely positive reaction, with Bear Grylls replying: "Well done, my friend."
Having caught the fitness bug, Matthews has decided to pay tribute to his brother, Michael, who sadly passed away in 1999 at just 22 after trying to Climb Mount Everest.
He explained: "I’m currently bang in the middle of training for the Jungle Ultra for The Michael Matthews Foundation – a 230km self-sufficient foot race through the Amazon Rainforest.
"MMF was founded over 20 years ago in memory of my late brother Michael who passed away during his descent from the summit of Everest. The foundation works to provide education and safety to children in remote and underprivileged areas in rural Tanzania. We’ve helped over 7000 children so far."
He continued: "This race is challenging, but it's nothing compared to the struggles that these children would face every day without our support…
"I'm delighted to be running for a cause that means so much to me, and I hope to make Michael proud.
"For more information on The Michael Matthews Foundation or to donate to this amazing cause, please head to the link in my bio."
