He shared a montage of images of himself alongside the older footage in a post titled: “I grew facial hair.”

A short clip showed him standing in the middle of what looks like a village hall or pub while topless and gripping his shirt in his hand.

He is shown enthusiastically shouting to friends, while showcasing his much less defined body.

There then follows a series of photos and video clips of Joe from more current times showing him flaunting his six pack and dressed in suave style.

It is not the first time that Joe has shown off how his body used to look.

Last summer, he explained how he would often be rejected when he attempted to court women when he had a larger body.

He shared snaps of his teenage years last year – which also showed him looking unrecognisable

Sharing snaps of himself as a teen, Joe wrote at the time: “In my school days, I didn’t worry about looking good or anything like that, but then I got a bit older.

“I injured my knee in rugby and had surgery and pushed it a bit far and gained a bit of weight.

“Then I realised, actually, I’m unfit and it’s time to be healthy, so started eating lots more fruit and veg and it started falling off. I went from Friend Zone Joe to suddenly, 'who are you?'"

He also explained at the time he had only had one girlfriend as he battled his weight.

He revealed: “I’ve only had one girlfriend – that was when I was 19 to about 21. I didn’t have any relationships before that I was a slightly chubbier child. I was the friend."

While Joe failed to find romance on Love Island back in 2019, and has struggled to hold down a relationship since, things might be about to change.

The reality star has recently joined the cast of The Only Way Is Essex and has been seen growing close to co-star Frankie Sims.

The pair are likely to see their blossoming romance be put under the spotlight as they are enjoying dates as part of the explosive reality series.

However, fellow TOWIE star Roman Hackett has warned the Love Island star he could be heading towards heartbreak, as he said: "I think Frankie will walk over him at this point. If you give it time Joe could sweep her up and take her anywhere.

"Right now it ain't a good match. Joe is such a nice boy and I don't want Frankie to break his heart."
