Dr Chris Brown cut a somewhat lonely figure during a solo swim at celebrity hotspot Bondi Icebergs in Sydney over the weekend.

The veteran presenter, 45, is said to be 'feeling a bit lost' after he jumped ship from Channel Ten and took on a hosting gig for property renovation show Dream Home and Dancing With The Stars alongside Sonia Kruger.

The celebrity veterinarian failed to raise a smile as he spent time at the popular beachside swimming pool.

His muscular frame and bulging biceps were on display in a pair of black swimming trunks as he glided into the water.

After the refreshing dip, Chris dried off with black and white beach towel before wrapping it around his body and sitting down to check his iPhone.

With both his Seven shows being a far cry from his roots as the animal-loving Bondi Vet star, sources told Woman's Day Chris is 'not himself'.

'The issue seems to be that neither of the two primetime slots he's been matched with [at Seven] – Dream Home and DWTS – have anything to do with who he actually is, which is a loving gorgeous kind caring vet,' an insider told the publication.

'He became who he is today by being that bloke everyone loved – The Bondi Vet – and even when he morphed into the hosting role on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! alongside Julia, at least there was a link to animals.'

The source continued: 'A renovation show wearing hi-vis and hard hats is a long way from his stethoscope and helping pet guinea pigs. He just seems like he's not himself. Almost a bit flat.'

Chris' alleged dour mood would have been made worse by the mixed reviews Dream Home received after its debut last month, with the media personality at the helm of the series amid his $2million contract with Channel Seven.

While Chris' natural charm was on full display in the show's first episode, many viewers couldn't help but find the premise quite familiar.

Several watching at home noted that Dream Home bears more than a passing resemblance to a similar show, House Rules, which aired on Channel Seven for eight seasons from 2013.

Just days ahead of the show's lacklustre debut, single bachelor Chris said he was already prepared to quit the show to devote more time to his love life.

Only a few weeks earlier, he also confessed in an interview with Stellar magazine that he still wants to become a dad despite devoting the last 10 years to his career.

As if being lovelorn wasn't enough, Chris has also been very open about the heavy emotional burden he carries watching his mother Anne battle Alzheimer's.

'She's still here, but the mum I know isn't any more,' he told Stellar.
