As far as reality show romances go, when it comes to Married At First Sight Australia's Jules Robinson and Cam Merchant, their relationship is going from strength to strength, with the on-screen husband and wife currently planning their legal wedding, which they're hoping to celebrate this year.
The couple have spent the past month holidaying overseas and you can bet there were plenty of pics posted to Instagram to document their travels, but there was one photo in particular that showed Jules rocking a seemingly slimmer figure, with speculation that the reality TV star had completed a body blast quick-fix ahead of her holiday.
But now Jules is setting the record straight, taking to Instagram to reveal the truth behind her holiday weight loss transformation, which she attributes to her new "holistic, healthy and sustainable" approach to weight loss, thanks to her new role as ambassador for WW Australia and New Zealand (formerly known as Weight Watchers).
While they've already wed on-screen Jules and Cam are currently planning their legal wedding, after Cam proposed to Jules at the end of their time on Married At First Sight.
Announcing the ambassadorship to her 281k Instagram followers, Jules posted a pic of herself during her recent trip to London rocking a gorgeous figure-hugging green floral dress, writing: "Proud to be the new ambassador for Australia and New Zealand WW!
"Anyone that knows me well and for a long time, knows that I have fluctuated my whole life. WW is [a] holistic healthy sustainable approach to being a healthy, curvy, womanly best version of myself! I'm looking forward to sharing this rewarding experience of you," Jules shares.
"This picture a few weeks ago escalated to a few articles reporting that [I] had done a 4 week body blast #quickfix to go away on holiday. This was not the case! I started my #juleswwjourney 2 weeks before I went away, and I successfully lost 3 kilos," Jules reveals.
"It was lovely to have my efforts recognised but I stress that @ww is so far from a quick fix. It's a long term lifestyle choice. My realistic goal was to return from Europe the same weight I left, and I did it! Remembering that I usually return 4 kilos heavier! #proud.
"The truth is. I had put on 10 kilos in 1 year. By no means do I want to be skinny. I embrace my curves, healthy is the new skinny. I'm looking forward to sharing my health and wellness choice with you all.
"Naturally as most, I want to look my best on my wedding day and importantly I want to be in great shape to carry a child. Thank you so much for all the support I have had already from you all."

Since sharing the news on social media, the MAFS star has been inundated with messages of support from her followers with people calling her an "inspiration" and another telling her WW had been the best weight loss healthy eating program she'd been on, adding, "Good luck you'll smash it 💕😁."
But the sweetest response by far has been from none other than her on-screen husband Cam, who wrote a heartfelt post on Instagram sharing he "couldn't be prouder" of Jules as she starts on a "new exciting life choice".
"Nothing shines brighter than a beautiful heart & no matter what, you are always a woman of style & grace," Cam touchingly wrote on his latest Instagram post.
"We often go through so many self journeys & together we have had our own but I couldn't be a prouder husband for Jules becoming @ww_aunz ambassador as it is the start of a new exciting life choice.
"The way you carry yourself always is held with dignity & love & I know this path you're taking is purely for you, you're beautiful to me in every way possible & I will love & support you every step of this journey as we always continue to strive to be the best version of ourselves that makes us even more happy within.
"May you represent all the women that embrace health and curves & happiness within themselves & shine beautiful always & help others do the same ♥."
Cheekily adding, "Not to mention I will try not to steal those @ww chocolate wafer biscuits that are 2 points from you too often… so very tasty 😂"

Jules and Cam met on the latest season of Married At First Sight Australia, where they were matched together as a couple, and despite the drama-fuelled season, the couple came out the other side stronger than ever.
Currently planning their second wedding the couple previously revealed to Woman's Day that they're already looking forward to starting a family.
"We're absolutely in love… that's what this whole journey has been about," Cam said.
