Dr. Alex George championed body positivity in an empowering Instagram post on Tuesday. 

The frontline medic found fame on Love Island back in 2018, a show that has been criticised for its lack of size diversity. 

Yet the influencer showed exactly where he stands on the matter as he insisted he feels ‘no shame’ after losing the six-pack abs he showed off on the ITV2 dating show.

Sharing a shirtless snap in his swimming trunks, he penned: ‘Define a BEACH BODY? Beach ✅ Body ✅ Be proud of the skin you live in.’

He went on to add: ‘Zero shame x, before playfully declaring: ‘And yes, I have factor 50 on’.  

Dr Alex’s post received a huge reaction from fans, including many of his celebrity friends, with Tallia Storm one of the first to comment saying: ‘Go alex’, followed by a flame emoji.   

Vicky Pattison was all praise for her friend as she wrote: ‘Go on son!!!’, while Alex’s Love Island castmate Josh Denzel commented: ‘My brother’, followed by punch emojis.

Dr Alex  is currently relaxing in Mauritius with his girlfriend Ellie Hetch. 

The loved-up getaway comes after he revealed last week that he is taking anxiety medication following the tragic death of his teenage brother last year.

The Youth Mental Health Ambassador urged his fans to follow his lead and to ‘#postyourpill’ in order to end the stigma around the use of medication to treat mental health.

He explained that he was ‘proud’ of himself for ‘taking control of his health’ and asked his followers to help him ‘take a stand’ against medication stigma.

The A&E doctor shared an image of his open hand holding a pill, his wave tattoo tribute to his late brother Llŷr visible on his wrist.   

Alongside the powerful picture, he wrote: ‘I have been thinking quite hard about whether to post this, but I feel it’s the right thing to do.

‘So many people live with medication stigma everyday, a fear that they will be judged as being weak or discriminated against, simply for taking a pill to help with their mental health.

‘The other day I did a poll on my stories and 75% of you have faced medication stigma. That is so sad.’

He revealed: ‘I take medication, alongside therapy and self care, to help with my anxiety. I really needed this treatment but for years I didn’t access it, on reflection I was worried about what people would think.

‘I can tell you now, I am not ashamed. I AM PROUD to take control of my own health. This does not make me weak or less able, it makes me stronger.

‘How many people are not getting the treatments they need AND deserve because of this very stigma? This HAS to change.

‘This post is not about saying medication is the ‘answer’ for everyone, rather to say that for those who need it should have access without barriers or shame.

‘If you feel you can, join me with #postyourpill to take a stand against medication stigma.’
