We love it when celebrities embrace looking natural and real - so we are full of praise for Simon Webbe right now.

The singer, 45, took to Instagram to share an unfiltered snap of his body, and while we may remember the former Blue hunk for his rippling muscles and six-pack abs, Simon was keen to show off his 'dad' bod instead.

Posing in a cryotherapy chamber, Simon wanted to make a statement on the pressure both men and women face to look picture perfect all the time.

We still think you look a dream, Simon.

The star revealed he was inspired to share this honest picture of his physique after Hollywood actor, Will Smith, posted a snap of himself topless.

Will, 52, said that he was proud of his body despite gaining a few extra pounds, as this was the body that had seen him safely through a pandemic.

However, he was now looking to shed the weight he'd gain in his own YouTube fitness challenge.

"I'm going to be real with y'all, I'm in the worst shape of my life," he said.

"This is the body that carried me through an entire pandemic and countless days grazing through the pantry.

"I love this body, but I wanna FEEL better. No more midnight muffins...this is it.

"Imma get in the BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!"

In his own candid Insta caption, Simon wrote: "Will Smith has inspired me to share my dad bod. There is so much pressure on men and women to strive for perfection.

"When we have those bad moments we have to embrace who we are, dig deep within and make a change.

"My change starts today."

Other celebrities have taken Will up on his challenge to get fit.

Marlon Wayans and Anthony Anderson are among those who have also posed topless, showing off their own 'dad' bodies.

Whether they choose to lose weight, or are happy to remain the way they are, it's always important to remember all bodies are perfect.
