A proud Paul, who recently moved into a stunning new home in Surrey with his family, then opened up about his transformation during lockdown.
He wrote in the caption: “Today is exactly 8 weeks when I started my fitness journey with @kc_life_change_fitnesspt Hard work and dedication has paid off.”
Gushing over his TOWIE girlfriend Sam, 29, he added: “I 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.”
Paul’s incredible fitness achievement received more than 26,000 likes from fans and hundreds of comments complimenting Paul on his transformation.
One wrote: “Well done amazing results you should be super proud of yourself x”.
Another added: “That’s honestly amazing, well done,” followed by a series of clapping emojis.

Writing in the caption, the PT explained: “I used to hear the title #onlinecoach and question the effectiveness … I used to question if I would be able to #motivate somebody without being in the same room as them.
“Well… #lockdown forced me to ,and I’ve learnt so much about myself through this journey This is 8 weeks into our 12 week #transformation @paulknightley”.
Praising Paul on his journey he said: “This guy has worked his socks off and to think we are still 4 weeks away from our end goal … If you’ve followed this journey you would have witnessed that this was achieved through mainly body weight exercises ,minimal equipment and some good meal prep from @samanthafaiers”.
