In a post on Instagram last week, Jackson spoke about what prompted him to appear on the gruelling TV show, sharing a publicity photo from the new series.

‘Whilst I was happy with my life and very content with my day to day, I felt that I was almost too comfortable and something was missing,’ he began.

‘I was doing the same thing, eating the same food and stuck with the same thoughts, caught in this cycle. I needed a change.

‘So why did I do it? Simple answer… ‘get comfortable being uncomfortable’.’

The show is set to premiere on Channel Seven on Monday, October 19.
