He may have been branded "rude" and "brash" by viewers during his stint on Celebs Go Datingthis summer – but Jack Fincham was happy and charming on the red carpet at the Animal Hero Awards.

He tells Closer that, while it’s a shame he didn’t always come across well on the show, he is glad he did it.

Jack, 28 – who won Love Island 2018 with then-girlfriend Dani Dyer – says, "If I wasn’t getting on with someone, I wasn’t going to waste my time.

"I just didn’t meet anyone I liked and no-one looks good on a bad date. Ninety-nine per cent of the time I was joking, but people didn’t get it. People always have an opinion of you."

He continued, "I am very single at the minute. But I learned a lot about myself when I was on the show. I just think I will know love when it comes along – something just clicks. We will see!"

The Love Island star recently admitted that he gained a stone over the summer and that his doctors have warned that he's on the brink of reaching obesity.

Speaking about his plans to lose weight, he explained: "That's why I've gone back to training. I'll be fighting hopefully early next year and I'll be even thinner.

"I'll come through the crack in the door next time," he told The Sun.
