The I'm A Celebrity jungle is a great place to open up.

The famous faces have hours to chat about life and what has brought them Down Under. 

So we wonder if James McVey from The Vamps will open up about his previous battle with food.

The musician revealed to the Mirror about his private struggle with an eating disorder.

Opening up about his struggle with food and body image, the guitarist said it had all began when he was overweight as a child.

As James grew he admitted that he developed a “negative relationship” with food which led to him being "stick thin." 

But the 24-year-old didn't realise just how small his frame had been.

 “Fans always send me pictures from years ago and I’m stick thin, and I didn’t realise back then just how thin I was," he said.

“I was ill and I looked ill. I’m happy that now I’ve come full circle and see food as a positive."

“I don’t want to belittle other people who have anorexia, but I think I definitely had a negative relationship with food in those early days. I was obsessed with food," he explained. 

Thankfully, James is on the road to mending his relationship with food. 

“It’s now about building muscle and getting leaner. You need to eat more of the good things,” he said.

Recently, James' fans haven't been too happy with his treatment in the camp.

The 24-year-old missed out on a care package and his followers felt like he wasn't been given enough air time.

We definitely wouldn't mind seeing more of James' face on our screens. 

Fair play to James for bravely opening up about his battle with food and if you're struggling with an eating disorder, you can find help here

It’s no secret that Taylor Swift has a big effect on the boys. So it’s not surprising that The Vamps singer, James McVey has developed a bit of a crush on the 24-year-old singer.

It seems James began to fancy Taylor after the band was supporting Swift during her Red tour in February. I Knew You Were Trouble singer liked the boys so much that she invited them back to one of her US shows where she played hostess and cooked the boys dinner.

When speaking of 24-year-old beauty, James said: “We played all her London dates with her, we just chilled and when she had her hair cut we were there. It was cool! Then she invited us round [to her L.A. home] and we just chilled.”

James’ fellow band mate Conor revealed that James does have a bit of a crush on Swift but tried to play it down saying that everyone in the band likes Taylor.

When James was questioned on whether romance was blossoming between him and Taylor he went on to to say “We’re just friends” and that Swift never came onto him.

Well, you never know James.
