Now, Pugh is represented by London agency AMCK Models, and has worked on campaigns with Vans, Bud Light, and Diesel.
Pugh is even a representative for David Beckham’s new male grooming brand, House 99.
“A picture says a thousand words… Coming from being 22 years old, overweight, plagued with injuries, and unhappy barely leaving the house,” Pugh tells Daily Mail. “I’m happier and healthier than I ever thought possible and doing things that didn’t even cross my mind to dream of.”

Despite his fairytale success, Pugh is still managing to stay humble. “I think I’m lucky I got into this profession at the age that I did,” he says. “I try not to get caught up in it all and my girlfriend helps a great deal with that.”
Pugh’s health has subsequently become one of his major priorities.
