EDDIE Hall, the world’s current strongest man, will visit Scarborough Spa later this year to talk through his journey to the prestigious title.

Nicknamed The Beast, he recently became the first Brit to win the World’s Strongest Man competition since Gary Taylor in 1993.

He defeated Iceland’s Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson – best known as The Mountain in Game of Thrones, as well as four-time winner Brian Shaw.

Eddie will talk on Sunday, September 2, through his journey from a young rebellious child to his insane diet and training regime that includes 12,000 calories per day to maintain his 30 stone plus body and four-hour gym sessions.

Hall, who is also the current world record holder in the ‘deadlift’, recently released a documentary about his life on Netflix.

The evening will be compered by former professional Rugby League player, now sports presenter, John Lebbon.
