DENISE Van Outen's ex-fiance Eddie Boxshall has stripped off topless to show her what she's missing in a bid to try and win her back.
The Celebrity Gogglebox star showed off his toned body as he shared a shirtless snap to Instagram days after it was announced they had split.
TV presenter Denise, 47, revealed she had broken up with her beau of seven years after he was allegedly caught "cheating" by talking to other women.
Eddie, 48, took to Instagram to flex his muscles after the shock announcement, as he encouraged his following to "be kind" to themselves.
Standing in his back garden, he had removed his shirt to show off his abs, smiling for the camera as he appeared unbothered by the break-up.
"Be kind to your body and it will be kind to you… healthy body, healthy mind," he captioned the topless snap. "I'm 49 years young in a few weeks.
"Been a gym goer and keen road and trail runner for most of my life and will continue to do so until my body says otherwise.
"I've partied hard with friends and socialised for many years too with work clients but there has always got to be a balance."
"Basically what I'm trying to say is look after yourself regardless if your young, middle aged like me or older," he signed off in the caption.
Eddie previously shared an inspirational quote with his following after his shock split with Denise was announced on Wednesday.
The quote about "turning dreams into a reality" was shared to his Instagram story alongside "#positivevibes" as he unfollowed Denise on social media.

Sources close to the pair have said that Eddie is desperate to win Denise back — but the star is adamant their relationship is over.
Eddie has moved out of Denise’s home and is staying with a pal at a pub nearby as he believes he can persuade her to forgive him.
He was seen yesterday for the first time since the split — looking weary, dishevelled and unshaven.
Sources close to Denise — who has been left furious and heartbroken — confirmed yesterday they would no longer appear together on Channel 4’s Celebrity Gogglebox.
A pal said: “Eddie is convinced he can win Denise back and isn’t willing to throw away all of their memories together. He’s pulling out all the stops to save their relationship.
“He feels terrible and pained that she’s hurting. He is desperate to gain her forgiveness and knows there are a lot of deep-rooted feelings involved. He’s not willing to accept it’s over for good.
“He thinks they’re the perfect match for each other and knows he was foolish. Eddie is keeping his distance for now and wants to give her the space and respect she needs.
"But he’s staying nearby in the hope he might be allowed back. He’s staying in a room above a mate’s pub.”
But sources close to Denise said she had “made up her mind” and was “determined to move on and very unlikely” to take him back.
