Jona added that he believes in having treat days, telling the website: ‘I’m all about balance. 

‘When people hear the word ‘diet’ they get turned off and think they have to completely change their lifestyle. It’s not about that.

‘It’s about enjoying your treats. You can still go out for drinks with your mates, as long as you’re back on track the next day’.
