Gareth Gates talks hunky body transformation as he shows off rippling abs11/27/2020
Gareth Gates looks completely different to the baby-faced singer who wowed millions of viewers on Pop Idol 18 years ago.
The singer, now 36, has transformed into a bronzed hunk with rippling abs and bulging biceps.
However, the pop star has revealed that he got more attention when he was a "skinny beanpole".
Speaking to The Sun, Gareth said: "I definitely got more attention back then. I was a pop star with loads of hits.
"But I think I look better now. It’s taken me six years to get this body. I got into the gym when I was 30 and stopped partying.
"But in the last couple of years I’ve started to take my fitness really seriously."
He works out for two hours every day and sticks to a clean diet.
The father of one broke up with former Coronation Street actress Faye Brooks, 33, in August last year and he's now living with DJ Chloe McLennan, 30.
The reality star moved Chloe into his home in Wiltshire just weeks after the pair met in Dubai.
He said: “We hit it off straight away and then we were forced to make a decision about whether to move in together or not.
“Normally things would move slower but we thought 'let’s give it a go'.
"I’m really happy, she’s lovely and a very private person."
Gareth and Chloe met just before lockdown in March this year but he says he still gets frisky messages from women.
"I can’t repeat the messages,” he said. “Too rude for publication."
Gareth's love life famously hit the headlines in 2002 after he came second to Will Young on Pop Idol.
He hooked up with former glamour model Katie Price and the mother of five went on to claim that she took his virginity in her autobiography, Being Jordan.
Gareth went on to marry dancer Suzanne Mole, the mother to his 11-year-old daughter Missy.
