He captioned the snap: "Other week when I was away having a gym to use everyday. This hasn't been an overnight process there’s been a lot of hard work.

"But the main thing is to shift the mental weight first and then the physical comes easier. have goals make goals but to achieve these goals apply discipline and consistency.

"Everyday is a blessing make the most of it."

Sam swooned over her boyfriend in the comment section, writing: "That’s my man," alongside fire and heart eye emojis.

He wrote: "Hard work and dedication has paid off."

Paul also thanked girlfriend Sam for her help, adding: "couldn’t have done it without my girl for prepping all my meals & encouragement 💪🏻 this is just the start and not my end goal yet."

She recently reminisced about their first meeting with a friend on an episode of The Mummy Diaries.

Sam then recalled: "So Ferne [McCann] had met Paul a few weeks before in Spain. She was like 'I've seen this guy I think you'll really fancy him. I'd already clocked him before she said 'that was the guy I was telling you about.'"

Her pal then asked: "Is there gonna be any wedding bells soon?", to which Sam said: "I don't know everyone always asks this question."
