Heavyweight BBC star Stephen Nolan has won a massive £50,000 — after losing an equally huge 75lbs. The top presenter put his money where his mouth is when he backed himself to shed more than five stone in 16 weeks.

Today we reveal the inside story of how Nolan earned a tasty £10,000 for every lost stone and how he’s boxing clever in the gym against a local politician to win his battle of the bulge.
