In Lose Weight Like Me, which airs on Channel 4 Tuesday at 8pm, Jordan looks at how to shed the pounds healthily and draws on his own experiences.
He said: “I’ve been in the shoes of someone who was very overweight.
“I’ve been in the shoes of someone who, not to toot my own horn, could be on the cover of Men’s Health. And then I’ve been in the shoes I’m in now, which is where I’m happy, I’m healthy.”
But even though he’s got a successful career in the public eye and is feeling healthy, he still feels pressure from Instagram and TV shows.

Jordan said: “I’ll see someone online and go, ‘They look shredded’. And I’ll spend the next two hours genuinely feeling crap about myself.”
Discussing Love Island, he added: “It’s crazy that you feel like you have to physically get like that to be on the show.”
I reckon Jordan’s new series is a much healthier TV option.
