Love Island star Curtis Pritchard was spurred on by bullies and trolls who commented on his weight to shift some pounds during his time on the reality TV show.

With not much to do it is inevitable after a long period of time hanging out in the villa a little weight might creep on.

The 24-year-old revealed that he joined WW and he can't thank the commentators enough for spurring him into action.

Curtis told Metro.co.uk: “I’ve always been focused on my diet and body. I haven’t always been focused on it in the correct way, that was the problem.

“And then going into Love Island, putting on a lot of weight and coming out again and being fat-shamed, it was really the perfect time to become an ambassador for Weight Watchers and join the family.”

The reality star revealed it was difficult leaving the show and seeing all the offensive remarks about his weight.

He said: “On a truthful note it isn’t nice to say something nasty about someone. It isn’t nice to do and be on the receiving end. But you know what, look at me now.

"I’m so positive and confident in how I look and feel now, I thank them for what they did because they really made you focus and this relationship came together with Weight Watchers.

“I’m an ambassador and part of the family now so I can only say thank you to them because it changed the way I am. But obviously it’s not nice when that stuff happens and I would never wish that on anyone.”

During his time on the show Curtis was coupled up with Amy Hart and she fell head over heels in love with him but he ended things to crack on with Maura Higgins.

Recently though, Curtis and Amy have reunited proving there's no hard feelings between them.

And while the pair may have ended on sour terms, it looks like they've mended their friendship after posting a selfie of themselves together during a night out.
