"Train hard and eat big!" That's the advice of Kent-based giant Terry Hollands - one of the figures to look out for in the ever-popular quest to find the strongest man in the country.
Standing at 6ft 7ins and weighing in at a massive 28st, Hollands won the title in 2005 and credits his success with spending every waking moment training. And he must have a lot of waking moments as he reckons that the main downside of being such a strapping specimen is regularly breaking his bed.
The setting for this year's wall-to-wall muscle show is the sea front of Minehead, Somerset, where contestants will be shield carrying, tyre flipping, anchor lifting and car-walking until they drop.
The action is presented by Martin Bayfield each night this week and in the first show tonight, England, Scotland and Wales are represented as five competitors lift those giant granite balls to prove their superior might.
