Penning a lengthy caption, he began: "I am all about positivity and my body has been a journey.

"If you’ve been following me for a while you will know I struggled with a eating disorder when I was young and I am so thankful to say I over come it with the help of my family and loved ones."

Harry continued: "After posting the picture on the right I have been reading so many DM’s / Comments / article comments saying how much weight I have put on and some have said things like I have left myself go (some are alot worse but I won’t type them)

"I am in shock! I am the healthiest I have ever been! I’m 29 next month and the picture on the left was 13 years ago, back then I had no energy, struggled to eat and hated wearing clothes because I couldn’t wear them nice. 16 year old Harry would be so proud of how far I’ve come."
