A veteran signaller who went on to win several bodybuilding titles says he has the military to thank for his lifelong passion.
Eighty-year-old Brian House, who served in both the Royal Artillery and the Yorkshire Regiment, still works and trains at his gym in York.
Brian’s bodybuilding career began during his service in Cyprus, where he worked as a radar operator.
He and other troops persuaded some local residents to provide them with weights and a bench, so they could work out after their shifts.
Over the course of his bodybuilding career, Brian has competed against 'The Terminator' Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lou Ferrigno, who went on to play 'The Incredible Hulk' on TV during the 1970s, and David Prowse, who was the body for Darth Vader, in the original Star Wars trilogy.
