TNA IMPACT WRESTLING superstar Magnus has been announced as the new host of the UK’s Strongest Man TV show.
The series will be broadcast on Challenge TV in the UK and Ireland later this year, with nine hours of event coverage also being televised across the globe.
Staged at the venue for last year's MTV awards – The Odyssey, Queen’s Quay, Belfast, Northern Ireland – the show will be recorded over the next five days. The event will see 30 strongmen from across the world battling it out for the ultimate prize.
Events taking place during the five gladiatorial days include the three highly anticipated Ultimate Competitions; UK Strongest Man for the CNP trophy, Masters World Strongest Man and Junior UK Strongest Man.
Thirty overall ultimate tests of strength make up the giant weekend with old favourites such as the Ultimate Truck Pull, the Axel Deadlift, the Anchor Pull and the Human Wheelbarrow all returning to entertain the crowds.
Tickets for the event are available on arrival and cost £5 per day with children under 12 admitted for FREE.
