He also spoke of “loving it” and driving dumpers on the spot, but swore it was a temporary gig.

“I get up at five or six every day and I’m on the job site, I drive the dumper and I loved it,” he said on the Anything Goes with James English podcast.

“Not because I want to be a builder, but because I want to keep my brain busy.”

He added, “I was sitting there waiting for jobs to come to me and it wasn’t happening. I have to go out and get it and it shows that I’m active.

“I’m making money again.”

Jack wants to continue his celebrity work and told the Daily Mail his management is in talks for upcoming projects and brand support deals.

The reality TV star’s new job comes as the 29-year-old has vowed to change his life after his drug-driving charge was dropped days before his trial.

The reality TV star was due in court accused of taking cocaine and Valium before getting behind the wheel of his £ 30,000 Mercedes.

Jack, who is the father of Blossom, her 11-month-old daughter, is said to be focusing on charitable work and taking time for himself now that the lawsuits have been dropped.

In a candid interview, Jack has spoken in depth about his personal battle with drugs since leaving the villa.

He won the series in 2018 alongside his then-girlfriend Dani Dyer.

Jack said: “I want to be known for being good enough, not the one who screwed it up.

“The one people say ‘he could’ve done so well.’

“I don’t want to be known as that person. I want them to say yes he fucked up, but look what he’s done now.

“I have no choice. With my addictive personality, it’s either that or death.

“I know it sounds extreme, but it’s the truth.

“If I don’t change my life, it’s either that or death.

“It will be a car accident or something to excess. Those are the choices.”

The 30-year-old was arrested by police near his home in Swanley, Kent, in January.

It was alleged that he had 239 micrograms of benzoylecgonine – a byproduct of cocaine – in his blood.

Prosecutors also said the former pen seller had 632 micrograms of diazepam in his system – the chemical name for the sedative Valium.

In July, he denied two counts of impaired driving when he appeared in Sevenoaks Magistrates’ Court.

He was due to appear in Maidstone Magistrates’ Court on Thursday.

His lawyers had argued that the blood test was a “false positive”.

Jack’s attorney told The Sun last week: “In the end, the Crown could not present any reliable evidence to prove that Mr. Fincham had drugs in his system.

“Mr Fincham has denied the allegation. He is therefore not guilty of the alleged offenses and will not be required to appear in court again in connection with this matter.”

A friend of the star told The Sun: “Jack has raised funds for the children of Great Ormond Street Hospital and is working on himself, giving back to causes close to his heart.

“He wants to enter 2022 with a positive public perception.

“His goal is to reinvent himself and establish himself again as a TV personality.”

Jack’s relationship with Dani ended about nine months after winning the show.

He appeared on Celebs Go Dating in 2019 and announced in January last year that he had first become a dad to a baby girl named Blossom.

He had an affair with Blossom’s mother, Casey Ranger, weeks after his split from Dani, but it didn’t turn into a long-term relationship.

Jack’s other exes include Connie O’Hara and her Love Island co-star Ellie Jones.

He also dated Frankie’s Towie co-star Chloe Brockett, but denied there was an “overlap”.

And the star recently sparked rumors he’d be back with Chloe after posting a selfie with her – from his bed.

The Towie star has confirmed that they are just friends.
