Ajay Rochester may have only been on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! for 10 days, but that was just enough time for the jungle life to have an impact on her body.
Speaking to Yahoo Lifestyle, the 49-year-old former host of The Biggest Loser reveals she’s already lost a few kilos and her stomach has “shrunk” due to the extremely stringent rationed diet on the show.
“My pants are definitely [more] loose,” she explains.
“I haven’t jumped on a scale yet but I’ve definitely lost weight. I can feel it.”
Also shedding light on exactly what the campmates eat, it’s safe to say they’re not receiving any star treatment in terms of meals.
“You can’t really understand how tiny the rations are,” she reveals. “It’s like two spoons of rice and two spoons of beans per meal.”
Now that she’s been eliminated from the show, surely the freedom to eat whatever you like would be a great relief.
But the TV star says adjusting to real life is not going to be so easy and immediate.
“You get out and you have these ambitions to eat this bunch of stuff, and then your stomach’s just so shrunken that you just can’t eat anything,” she admits.
“I’m literally staring at an egg sandwich and potatoes and sausages and I’m like, ‘I can’t eat it’.
Ajay, who was the first to be eliminated from the 2019 season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! on Tuesday, is not the first in the show’s history to speak about the impact the experience can have on your body.
Last year model Simone Holtznagel revealed she shed just over 6kg after being in the South African jungle, while comedian Fiona O’Loughlin lost 8.2kg.
Meanwhile former Australian Idol star Casey Donovan dropped 17kg during her time on the show in 2017.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues at 7:30pm on Channel Ten.
