Jake is currently Stateside with his new girlfriend Sophie Church.

Gushing over the brunette beauty, Jake captioned one snap: "Why wouldn’t I be smiling.

"Surround yourself with people that make you a better person!"

Jake's image overhaul came ahead of his debut on Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks.

While Jake is yet to appear on the small screen he has already filmed his first scenes in the drama-filled Chester village.

Jake previously revealed that while he was keen to toned up, his image overhaul was actually for the sake of his mental health.

Alongside before and after shots, the singer wrote: "So six weeks ago I was like this, felt horrible but worst was mentally I was down in myself.

"My anxiety was terrible and just felt unmotivated and lazy, so I started eating better and working out hard.

"Yes my body has changed and look better…. but the main thing is mentally I feel better, I’m optimistic about what’s next excited to try new things and really happy how things are turning out and my anxiety is so much better I wake up and I look forward to the gym and the rest of the day."
