The much-loved I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! winner proudly showed off her slender new physique at the Ace Awards in Sydney last week, wowing with a sexy figure-hugging frock that left little to the imagination.
Before going on the reality TV show, Casey revealed she was hoping the stint would help her get her health back on track and lose 50kg.
She revealed she’d shed 17kg during her time in the jungle – and is believed to have gone on to drop another 8kg since leaving the show.
‘Casey is in the best shape of her life and is really committed to losing even more weight,’ a friend of the singer reveals.
‘She was so proud to show off her body at the Ace Awards – it was the first time in a long time that she put on some heels and a frock and felt good.’
Her killer new body was met with a wave of support from her thousands of fans, who took to Instagram to congratulate Casey on her amazing slim-down.
‘Gorgeous!!!! You look amazing!’ wrote one, while another commented: ‘Wow! Looking fabulous!’
Friends of the singer reveal she’s continued to drop kilos since leaving I’m A Celeb by preparing kilojoule-controlled, small-portion meals – which she frequently photographs and shares on social media – and following a hardcore exercise regimen.
Casey is said to have been inspired by her I’m A Celeb cast-mate, fitness coach Lisa Curry, who encouraged Casey to exercise during their stint on the show, and has since offered to mentor her through her post-show weight-loss journey.
After one intense workout at ‘Lisa Curry’s Jungle Gym’, Casey told viewers the sweat session was ‘a shock to the system, let’s just say that’ – but she’s obviously been inspired to continue with Olympian Lisa’s workout of sit-ups, push-ups and squats.
It’s an amazing success story for the Australian Idol winner, who’s long battled yoyo dieting and has spoken openly about her weight hell.
‘My name is Casey Donovan and I am morbidly obese,’ the 28-year-old revealed on her blog last year.
‘I don’t want [to] live like this anymore! I don’t want to dig myself an early grave when the one thing I fear in life is death.’
