It’s James Of The Jungle! Perma-tanned Lock bears a striking resemblance to Brendan Fraser’s legendary character as TOWIE star goes shirtless for new selfie

Fortunately there are no vines on Brentwood high street, else James Lock might have been swinging from them after conjuring images of Brendan Fraser’s much-loved George Of The Jungle in his latest Instagram post. 

Perma-tanned The Only Way Is Essex star James, 35, showed off his muscular frame after stripping down to his briefs for a new social media selfie taken from his bathroom on Tuesday morning. 

But his shoulder-length hair, snug fitting underwear and bronzed physique inadvertently recalled Fraser’s jungle dwelling, Tarzan-like character in director Sam Weisman’s 1997 comedy.

The Hollywood actor recently admitted he starved himself to attain the toned physique required to play George, a feral man raised by animals in the African jungle. 

But the process affected his cognitive ability and left blank spots in his memory caused by him constantly craving food. 

He told Variety: ‘The wardrobe was there was no wardrobe. I would drive home after work and stop to get something to eat. 

‘I needed some cash one day, and I went to the ATM, and I couldn’t remember my PIN number because my brain was misfiring. Banging on the thing. I didn’t eat that night.’

The TOWIE star recently claimed his ‘lothario’ days are over, and he’s no longer interested in ‘jumping from girl to girl’, favouring a relationship with ‘substance.’

New chapter: The TOWIE star recently claimed his ‘lothario’ days are over, and he’s no longer interested in ‘jumping from girl to girl’, favouring a relationship with ‘substance’  

In an exclusive interview, James, who’s dated Love Island’s Megan Barton-Hanson and co-star Yazmin Oukhellou, insisted that he’s ‘matured’, and he’ll no longer be ‘sidetracked by chasing skirt.’

He told MailOnline: ‘When I first came on the show, I was a young man, single, and enjoying it.

‘I’m not being funny, but I was on a massive TV show, which is very popular and still is to this day and I was a main character on it, I go out, and most of my following are female. When you go out and you get that attention and you’ve got that power…’

He added: ‘Now I’m not trying to be this lothario jumping from girl to girl I’m looking for something a bit more.

‘As I’ve got a bit older and I’m a bit more mature I can’t be bothered texting loads of girls. It’s not about the effort but it’s more about the fact that I’ve grown up.

‘Whoever I meet now I want a bit more substance to that person.’
