He became an ambassador for WW after being trolled for his weight gain in the villa

Love Island finalist Curtis Pritchard has opened up to Closer Online and confessed he never wants to go on a diet again despite only recently becoming a brand ambassador for WW.

During his time in the villa there were reports that Curtis had asked Love Island bosses for a 'new wardrobe' following his body transformation.

ITV bosses then hit out and slammed viewers for body shaming and then the dancer turned reality star confessed he gained two stone during his time on the show because "I enjoyed myself in the villa and I didn’t exercise a lot".

Yewande Biala and George Rains were not even in the villa at the same time but outside they seem to be having a whale of a time. Fans were buzzing in August when the Casa Amor star appeared to have Yewande's makeup all over his face.

The 23 year old recently became an ambassador for WW - the new Weight Watchers - and during a chat with Closer Online, he admitted that crash diets don't work for him so he never wants to do another one again.

"Joining the WW family is something I needed because I've always done crash course diets. I've always been aware of my figure, aware of how I look because I've always been in dancing competitions," he explained.

"My weight has always fluctuated - up and down like a yo-yo - with these crash course diets you lose a massive amount of weight in a short amount of time but it's so bad for you.

"Mentally and physically. It just drains you, you can't function properly, think properly and all of a sudden all you do - because you're so petite you put all the weight back on and - you binge eat."

After admitting that being fat shamed spurred on his decision to change his lifestyle, Curtis went on to say that WW is what's going to help his new lifestyle.

"I want something that's going to help me create a healthy sustainable lifestyle and it's not something that's going to stop me from doing out because that's what these crash course and other diets do stop you from going out, you can't do this...

"I don't want a diet. I never want a diet ever again. I want something that's just going to create new habits and that's what WW is doing to do with me."

Maura recently admitted there was on point during her Love Island journey that she walked out of the villa and although Curtis didn't experience those feeling he did break down in tears on his third day on the show.

"I cried on the third day for no reason. Third day in there and I went to the beach hut and I just started crying.

"I don't even know why. It's such a heightened and emotional place. The highs are so high and the lows are so low because it's such a unique environment.

"But after that third day I loved every single second of it. There was very hard times in there and there was amazing times in there."

Amy Hart: 'After Love Island I'd get into bed at lunchtime and cry'

Curtis had an unusual journey in the Love Island villa; he coupled up with Amy Hart pretty quickly and they became half-boyfriend and girlfriend however his head was turned when Jourdan Riane entered the villa during Casa Amor.

After Amy returned back to the main villa - unaware of her half-boyfriend's feelings - he opened up to her and swiftly called it quits on their relationship.

He then surprised everyone and moved on to Maura Higgins and they're still together- two months after leaving the villa.
