A man who declared he wanted to end it all because he was overweight wouldn’t be the traditional choice for the face of an eating disorders cause.
But Sam Smith’s new boyfriend Jay Camilleri has revealed he wants him to front his bulimia charity.
Model Camilleri, 25, who appeared on E4 reality show Dirty Sexy Things, says he hopes Smith, below, will become the patron after his battle with anorexia.
Camilleri said: “It’s early days with Sam and I, but we have been hanging out a lot having drinks, like at Shoreditch House. People have noticed.
“I want to prove myself and I’m not the sort of person who wants to trade on somebody else’s fame but, let’s face it, modelling isn’t going to be a long-term career. I mean, I’m no David Gandy.“
Camilleri, above, went on in an interview with The Sun: “I suffered hell with anorexia and now I love my food and put on weight if I’m not careful. Sam’s lost weight but he’s supportive.
“I’m producing a documentary on men’s weight issues, as it hasn’t really been covered, and set up a charity for eating disorders for friends and family of people suffering and who don’t know how to cope.
“I’m hoping Sam, who’s had his own weight battles, will be the patron.”

He constantly boasts on social media how he has shed three stone in a year following dietician Amelia Freer’s healthy eating plan and posts pictures such as the below in workout gear.
Smith said last year: “I saw a picture of me on New Year’s Eve topless on a beach in Sydney and it made me want to kill myself.
“I thought I was huge. I was put in contact with Amelia, who got Boy George to lose all his weight.”
