He is completely in love after moving in with Laura Anderson in Dubai last month.
But Dane Bowers, 41, revealed his insecurities by saying he’s “beating above his weight” with his Love Island star girlfriend, 32.
The singer told fans in an Instagram video on Wednesday that he is embarking on a new fitness regime because his “dad body” has left him too self-conscious by the pool.

He explained: “So I wanted to make a video because I’m about to do something that I’ve been putting to myself for months, which is go to the gym.
“I’m going to do a pretty serious 12-week class that I’ll tell you about, but I don’t know how you guys feel about going to the gym.
“Of course girls talk a lot about their bodies and not being happy, or whether they’re happy, or whatever, but I feel like guys don’t really do it.
‘Of course I’m going past forty now. I definitely have a father body and I really don’t like my body to the point where I really have to push myself and breathe a little bit to take off my top by the pool…which clearly in Dubai is hard work for there are many pools, the beaches. I don’t really like taking my top off.’

Laura divorced Dane three years ago after finding out he had cheated on her, but they rekindled their romance and moved in together in the United Arab Emirates in May.
Dane told his followers he felt insecure next to partner Laura during a recent photo shoot, who he says “looks amazing, she has a ridiculously good body,” adding: “Yeah, and I’ve read all the comments, I know the I’m hitting.’
Dane continued: ‘For me we did a shoot in the pool and I wasn’t completely out of my mind but I felt very aware and I’m sure there are a lot of guys who feel the same way.
Self-preservation: Dane admitted feeling too self-conscious during a recent photoshoot alongside beauty Laura that involved taking off his top in the pool
“I’ve always said, ‘I have to go to the gym, I have to fix it,’ because I don’t want to feel uncomfortable taking my top off by the pool.
The former pop star said he would regularly post videos on his social media page to hold him accountable, adding that he hopes to see some results soon.
After moving to the UAE with Laura in May, Dane revealed it was his twelfth move in four years.
Laura ended her romance with Dane, who was previously in a relationship with Katie Price, 42, after discovering he was unfaithful in 2018. But sources close to the couple say they’re officially back to work – and hope it’s long-term this time.
A source told MailOnline: ‘Dane and Laura have spent all their time together in Dubai – being back in each other’s company has reminded them how good it used to be.
“Laura was devastated to find out Dane was cheating on her, but years have passed and she’s now willing to give him another chance.”
