Win tickets to UK's Strongest Man
Win a pair of tickets every day this week (04 - 07/05) on the MK Breakfast Show to the UK's annual strongman competition held at Stadium MK across the May Bank Holiday weekend.
Hosted by former professional footballer and TV presenter Chris Kamara, 16 of the strongest men from across the UK will compete to win the title of the UK's Strongest Man.
Competitors such as Ireland's strongest man Matthew 'The Real' McCoy and Mark Felix 'The Dark Destroyer' from England, who at 54-years-old is the oldest competitor, will take part in gruelling tests and stunts, such as the iconic '2 Man Car Roll' - where strongmen attempt to lift up and roll a car over completely, then pick it up again and do the same once more, and the 'Stones Of Strength'; strongmen will have to lift 22-inch stones as heavy as 100kg, 115kg, 130kg, 145kg and 160kg in the fastest time.
The competition - including the Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals, and Grand Final - will be filmed and broadcast on Channel 5.
Thousands of visitors are set to descend on Stadium MK to watch the action unfold while sitting outdoors in a socially distanced setting and you could be one of them!
