Paul took to Instagram to share a topless snap of himself, in which he proudly showed off his new slimline look.

He wrote: “Other week when I was away having a gym to use everyday.

“This hasn’t been an overnight process there’s been a lot of hard work. But the main thing is to shift the mental weight first and then the physical comes easier.

"Have goals make goals but to achieve these goals apply discipline and consistency.

"Everyday is a blessing make the most of it thanks @kc_life_change_fitnesspt for pushing me everyday #blessed #noexcuses #getit.”

Supportive girlfriend Sam, 29, showered Paul with praise as she commented underneath his post with: “That’s my man”, along with a fire and love heart eyes emoji.

Sam’s sister Billie, 30, also complimented Paul on his new look as she wrote: “Sorry ARD. very prod of you Bro." [sic].

His mother Gaynor, 61, who has appeared on The Mummy Diaries, wrote: "I know how hard you’ve worked. well done Paul."

It comes as Sam, who shares Paul Jr, four, and Rosie, two with Paul, opened up on why she won’t be returning to TOWIE for the 10th anniversary.

The reality star is an original cast member of TOWIE and appeared in the first episode of the series.

During her time on the series, she had an on-off relationship with Essex heartthrob Joey Essex.

In 2014, following her Crohn’s disease diagnosis, Sam announced her decision to take a break from TOWIE, but has not returned since.

Since her time on the series, Sam has made a whopping £9million fortune through books, clothing lines and perfume, a wealth which can only be matched by Mark Wright.

As a number of the original cast members prepare to reunite, including Lauren Goodger, Amy Childs and Mark Wright, Sam has shared her decision not to go back to the show which found her fame.

Sam, who isn't the only original cast mate to snub the reunion as Kirk Norcross also won't be returning, explained: “I won’t be getting involved because, to be honest, it’s like I’m at a completely different stage in my life now.

“I don’t even know what I would do on there any more.

“I’ve got my own life with my kids, and TOWIE is ten years ago for me. You just can’t compare my life then to my life now.”

Sam, who now stars in ITVBe reality show The Mummy Diaries alongside sister Billie, continued to The Sun On Sunday: “If someone had said to me back then, in ten years, you’re going to have your own long-running TV show and loads of ­lucrative endorsements, I would have just laughed and said, ‘Yeah right!’”
