Simon Gregson wants to lose his lockdown weight in the IAC castle
Simon Gregson is desperate to get into Gwrych Castle – so he can shift his lockdown podge.
The actor, 47, says he’s hoping to treat I’m A Celeb like a fitness boot camp.
But, despite his weight loss wish, he says he has prepped for his stay in North Wales by eating pies.
Simon, right, who will enter the camp in tonight’s show, said: “I’ve done two weeks of quarantine.
“I thought, ‘Right, there’s some gym equipment, I shall lower my food intake, I shall do all the proper sleeping patterns that you have to do as it goes on late’.
“I’ve done none of them. I’ve kind of put the whole thing to the back of my mind so far that, at one point, I forgot what I was doing here.
“Just eating pies and enjoying life to its fullest. Of course, the food isn’t great rice and beans all the time.
“But for me it’s a bonus. I desperately need to lose weight so I’m looking at it like the worst boot camp in the world.”
