JACQUELINE Jossa showcased her incredible weight loss after being crowned queen of the jungle on I'm A Celebrity earlier this week.
The former EastEnders actress, 27, looked remarkably trimmer than when she arrived Down Under just three weeks earlier.
And many fans, desperate to follow in Jacqueline's footsteps, were left asking how they can also achieve the same quick and easy weight loss results.
While Jacqueline's weight loss was achieved under extreme circumstances on I'm A Celeb, top nutrition expert Harry Thomas, has revealed that there are several ways you can shed the pounds in a similar light to Jacqueline.
Here, Harry, owner of No1 Fitness and life coach, takes us through the best ways you can lose weight quickly and safely – especially before Christmas.
1. Reduce calories
Jacqueline would have been eating less than half of her usual daily calorie intake when she was in the jungle which would have sped up her weight loss.
And while the amount of calories the I'm A Celeb stars would have cut down on were extreme, Harry says it shows just how important being in calorie deficit is when it comes to weight loss.
He says: "Jacqueline would have been on reduced calories than she had back home.
"So the first thing is to reduce calories and get yourself into a deficit, this means burning more than you are consuming.
"The best way is too create awareness on what you are currently consuming, including all food and liquids.
"This is a great way to learn about how much we are consuming.
2. Move more & count steps
As well as the gruelling tasks, Jacqueline would have been on her feet and moving around a lot more when she was in the jungle.
Harry says if you want to replicate her weight loss, you also need to make sure you're doing more exercise.
"Being out in the jungle would have meant she was very active," he says.

"They are always on their feet, much more practical stuff like carrying bags, making camp, cleaning, cooking and all of the challenges. Very opposite to the sedentary lifestyle we have back here.
"The best way is to move more – this will all help to burn more calories.
"Make it simple and pay attention to your step count.
"I recommend a minimum or 10000 per day, but if you are way short of that, aim to beat your average score. The more you move the better."
3. Focus on sleep
Harry says the sleep patterns Jacqueline would have developed in the jungle will have helped her blitz body fat.
He revealed: "Jacqueline was also out in nature, sleep patterns would have been go to bed when the sun goes down and wake with the sun.
"This works great for your internal clocks and sacadium rhythms.
"Unfortunately this is not always possible in England with the dark mornings, so using an alarm clock like Lumie can help.
"Although sleep is not directly responsible for weight loss, it will help aid everything else that does help."
4. Try intermittent fasting
Just as Jacqueline had to fast if her campmates got no stars on a trial, Harry says intermittent fasting is an effective tool for reducing your weight.
Harry says: "Intermittent fasting is a great approach to cut back on calories, purely because you are skipping a meal out of your day or delaying when you eat.

"If you can cut back on 500 calories every day to your standard diet, you will lose about 1lb at the end of the week.
"That’s one less pastry, two avocados, three glasses of wine or even two hot chocolates.
"Rather than cutting everything out, see where you can get your quick wins."
5. Be conscious of what you're eating
The main thing Harry says aspiring slimmers can take from Jacqueline's weight loss in the jungle is being more conscious of exactly what you're consuming.
He says: "Become more conscious of what put in your mouth, ask yourself do I actually need this?"
Jacqueline is not the only star to have come out looking slimmer after the famously mean rations that are part of life in the I'm A Celeb jungle.
Her former EastEnders co-star Cliff Parisi claimed he'd lost 1.5 stone over the 14 days he spent in camp, saying his stomach had shrunk.
Kate Garraway also lost 14lbs across the three weeks she spent on the show.
And James Haskell looked noticeably leaner after going from eating 4,000 calories a day to just 700 during his time on the show.
