Jilted MKR star’s six pack of re­venge

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

RE­VENGE is def­i­nitely tast­ing sweet for My Kitchen Rules star JP Huil­let, whose for­mer flame Nelly Rig­gio ended up in the arms of celebrity chef Adri­ano Zumbo.

The 31-year-old was left “sad, angry and con­fused” af­ter the split but used it to turn his life around and get a “re­venge body”.

Huil­let has shed two ki­los of fat and put on half a kilo of mus­cle in the past six weeks as his life takes a “a com­plete 360”. “I’m very happy. My view on things is that life goes on,” he said. “I’m trav­el­ling, I’m in the gym and eat­ing right and do­ing what I want to do.”

Huil­let and Rig­gio ini­tially stayed to­gether af­ter her move to Syd­ney to work with Zumbo last Septem­ber but their re­la­tion­ship fell apart within a mat­ter of months.

While ru­mours of an af­fair plagued the split, it is un­clear when Zumbo and Rig­gio be­gan dat­ing. Huil­let said he only dis­cov­ered his lover and the Just Desserts host were of­fi­cially to­gether when she posted on In­sta­gram.

“Ob­vi­ously … I was sad be­cause I saw my life go­ing a cer­tain way with Nelly, but I am in such a dif­fer­ent place now. Like I’ve said be­fore, I wish them all the best,” he said.

“Hon­estly, peo­ple change and peo­ple grow apart and it is what it is, so there’s no point in hold­ing on to it or be­ing up­set about it.”
