The jaw-dropping shots come just two months after David admitted he couldn’t get any dates when he was a teen – despite carving out a reputation as Britain’s most handsome man.
The fashion icon told Alan Carr on his Life’s a Beach podcast, he said: ‘They were not my good years. I think you have a different impression, I grew out and then up so I wasn’t in my best fighting fit form.’
Quickly butting in, Alan shocked asked: ‘You were minging?’ to which David responded: ‘Not far off!’

And back in March, David told Richard Eden’s, Eden Confidential: ‘I’m not particularly happy with the way I’m looking at the moment. I’m not at my fighting weight, as I call it.’
He admitted to fearing changes to his chiselled good looks as he ages, saying: ‘The two things that scare me is that apparently your ears and nose carry on growing. If that’s true, I am in massive amounts of trouble.’
The star is father to daughters Matilda, three, and Tabitha, seven months with barrister girlfriend Stephanie Mendoros.
David, who is Britain’s highest-paid male model, has been dating barrister Stephanie for five years yet remains coy over his private life.

The model, reported to be worth £12 million, has previously said he dreams of having a big family one day.
David shot to fame back in 2001 when his then-housemate entered him into a modelling competition on ITV’s This Morning without his knowledge. He subsequently won the competition and was awarded a contract with Select Models.
He has appeared in numerous high-profile campaigns for the likes of Dolce & Gabbana Hugo Boss and Carolina Herrera, as well as being a face of high street brand Marks and Spencer.
