The Mr Cumbria Competition , which is organised by the IBFA, has existed in the county since 1980.

This year it is tipped to be the biggest bodybulilding competition in the UK, according to Workington gym owner and former bodybuilder Ted Clifton.

Ted said: "We have got some good local lads this year and some first timers who have never done a show before.

"We have just found out it is the biggest bodybuilding show in Great Britain at the moment, we have over 50 competitors coming from all over the country.

"It's one of the biggest bodybuilding shows in the country and great to be a part of."

Competitors will range from Under 21s catagories to over 50s, with bodybuilders still being able to enter on the day.

The competition will take place this Sunday, May 29 from 1pm in the Carnegie Theatre Workington.
