Nolan should be applauded for facing obesity problem
The broadcaster Stephen Nolan is no stranger to making headlines when confronting big political and social problems in our community.
However, one of his biggest challenges is in tackling his chronic weight problem, and he is courageously doing this through a revealing television documentary which is being screened tonight.
This is an important matter, and while he will not win over some of his more snobbish critics, he has a host of strong supporters who will sincerely wish him all the best.
Maybe if he tries to control his weight for their sake as well as his own, he might finally set out on the right road to a thinner future. Stephen often puts a brave and jovial face on things, but this is a serious issue.
