It's been a stellar 12 months for Sam Quek, from winning gold at the Rio Olympics, making it the semi-finals of I'm A Celeb and being awarded an MBE.

And now the Olympian is taking on the modelling world as she makes her debut for Littlewoods' new fitness collection.

The 28-year-old poses up a storm in a range of sportswear from brands like Adidas, Reebok and Under Armour.

On the Littlewoods range Sam said: "I love the fitness collection - there was so much choice and so many great brands.

"It was great to see and try on all the new ranges and clothes - and after the jungle it was so exciting to get all glammed up and feel amazing in hair and make up."

During her time in the jungle Sam broke the strict ITV rules, of no contact with the outside world, when she sent a secret message to her boyfriend.

The hockey player subtly wrote the numbers 143 on her hat - a special code for boyfriend Tom Mairs meaning I love you.

The Littlewoods fitness collection is available to buy online now .
