What would Christmas be without a little bit of reality star stripping?
Well that is precisely what The Only Way Is Essex star Dan Osbourne has decided his gift to the nation is this festive season!
Dan, who didn’t feature much at all in the last series of the hit ITV2 reality show has dressed up for the Christmas festivities, then stripped right back down again for two popular magazines.
In his photo shoot for Reveal, the hunky fitness fanatic can be seen dressed as the pinup for Christmas itself, Santa, posing cheekily for the camera with his washboard stomach on display before losing pretty much all of his outfit to lie provocatively in the snow.
In the Cosmopolitan shoot Dan decides to not even bother putting the clothes back on and can be seen posing saucily with nothing but a well-placed towel to maintain his dignity.
Dan first appeared in TOWIE two seasons ago and quickly embarked on a relationship with the newly single Lucy Mecklenburgh after a holiday fling in Marbella.
Unfortunately the romance was short-lived as it was revealed when they got back that Dan’s ex was expecting his baby.
This discovery may have put Lucy off, but the other Essex girls weren’t too bothered by his impending fatherhood, and during the last series we saw Dan taking Ferne McCann out on a rock climbing date after beating her rival Jasmin in an auction to nab him, where his tight harness left as little to the imagination around his private area as the towel in Cosmo has done this week.
Read/drool over Dan’s Christmas gift to females everywhere by picking up a copy of the latest issue of Reveal, or by buying the January edition of Cosmopolitan, both out now.
The Only Way Is Essex returns to our ITV2 screens tomorrow (Wednesday December 11) night at 10pm with their Christmas Special, The Only Way Is Essexmass.
