Living in the Australian jungle may come with its downsides (bugs and snakes and celebrity clashes, oh my). But I'm a Celebrity star James Haskell proved in his latest Instagram post that it can have its advantages, too. The mixed martial artist posted a shirtless photo on Wednesday showing off his admirable six-pack – and he's clearly in better shape than ever. There's no danger of the 34-year-old becoming too precious about keeping trim, though – while posing, James was shovelling a slice of pizza into his mouth and holding on to a bottle of beer, both of which must have seemed like unimaginable luxuries after more than two weeks in the outback!

The retired rugby player captioned the revealing picture: "Thank you so much to everyone who voted for me! Sadly, I didn’t make the cut but I loved every second of my @imacelebrity experience! The most important thing to me is the opinion and respect of my fellow campmates, with whom I have lived for the last 17 days. I was truly touched and humbled by their reactions this morning in camp. Also cannot thank @andrewismaxwell, @adeleroberts and @cliffparisi enough for their amazingly kind and generous words to me today. Here’s to another slice [pizza emoji] and [beer emoji], and on to the next adventure."
