BBC presenter Stephen Nolan has admitted crashing off his diet "in a very bad way" by licking 20 packets of crisps while parked on the side of a road in his car.

The popular presenter has hit the gym intensively in the last few months in an attempt to shift the weight before he goes on holiday to the United States, regularly updating followers of his progress on social media.

However, he admitted on his Radio Ulster show on Friday morning that he had broken his diet on Thursday.

"I crashed yesterday, I crashed in a very bad way. I was doing a lot of licking," he told listeners.

"I basically licked 20 packets of crisps. I got one of those huge multipacks. Twenty packets of crisps I licked. My tongue was completely numb...I went into some type of trance."

He told listeners there is a big packet of "soggy crisps" in his car.

He said he licked six packets of chicken flavour, six prawn cocktail, six salt and vinegar and two packets of McCoy beef and salt and vinegar crisps.

He also admitted eating two bars of Fry's Chocolate Cream.

"I fell of the wagon massively. But rather than as usual, I would get really down, this time I went to the gym," he said.

Nolan said that when he arrives in America for his holiday he will be "sprinting to the buffet" for his first "nice, big dirty meal" in four months, before returning to his diet the next day.
