David's account is a place of pure positivity and joy and if you follow one Instagram account this week it should be his.

David regularly updates his account with progress reports along with recipe tips and Slimming World updates.

According to his bio David has nearly lost a stone and his smiling happy face would brighten even the dreariest of winter days.

David might want to check in with Dermot & Dave producer Maria for this outstanding tip 😂
