Mikey recently posted a throwback photo of himself when he was the best shape of his life.
While Mikey did not clarify when the image was taken, it appears to be from around a year ago.
He told his followers that he was using the photo as motivation to get back in shape.
‘Throwback to when I was probably the fittest I’ve been… I can tell you I don’t look like this right now,’ he captioned the post.
‘But after Easter I’m doing six weeks of no alcohol or junk food until May 23! Last detox lasted 48 hours but that’s okay. When you fail, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and try again!
A good cause: Mikey is set to host The Virtual Playground’s Lift Your Mood launch party on Zoom on Friday evening, which will see participants dress up in their best 80’s gear for a fun live workout in lockdown
‘I’m posting this to keep myself accountable.’
Mikey looked a lot more muscular in the throwback photo than he did before last week’s reunion dinner party, which was filmed on January 15.

Mikey said he was getting involved because the lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic is ‘obviously stressful for the whole country’ and everyone ‘needs to smile.’
‘The country needs to smile and mental health should be a huge focus in tough times,’ he said.
He rose to fame on Married At First Sight earlier this year, when he ‘married’ Natasha Spencer.
