This Love Island star is swapping showbiz for shadowboxing.

Life after Love Island is a tricky affair and former contestants have turned to all sorts to keep themselves occupied - from makeup collabs to clothing lines, with many also going on to star on other well-known reality shows... the likes of Georgia Steele on Celebs Go Dating (an excellent watch if you're on hunt for some light-hearted entertainment btw).

Deciding to upgrade to something a bit more rough and ready, ex-islander Jack Fincham has revealed that he'll be stepping into the boxing ring very soon. Inspired by the Fury brothers - well one can only imagine that's the case given that he's being coached by Tyson Fury's former coach - Jack has signed a professional contract with boxing promotion company BOXXER.

Hoping to compete in the light heavyweight division, the reality star has had a 'complete lifestyle change' and is apparently taking the whole thing very seriously. Staying true to his roots though, there is of course a reality TV element involved and his progress is being filmed for a new show titled The Fight Of My Life.

Described as a 'fly on the wall series', it follows him as he takes on the physical, mental and emotional aspects of getting himeself in shape. The first episode launched on YouTube last night and you can watch it here.

Float like a butterfly, sting like Jack Fincham.
