Britain's Strongest Man features the biggest, strongest men in the country and is the ultimate showdown of strength.
It will again be filmed for Channel 5, as part of the official World’s Strongest Man qualifying tour - last year's show was at Doncaster Dome.
This year, say organisers, with more spectators, an epic atmosphere, gigantic men and colossal challenges, the spectacle of British strongman - featuring World's Strongest Man Eddie - is finally setting its stage in front of the stadium audience it deserves.
The strongmen will lift stones, throw kegs, carry cars and hoist heavy metal, to prove they have the herculean determination to overcome five gruelling tests of strength.
Other crowd favourites expected to take part include the likes of Laurence “Big Loz” Shahlaei, gentle giant Mark Felix, strongman legend Terry Hollands, fellow athletes Adam Bishop, Mark Steele, Graham Hicks, Scotland’s Strongest Man, Luke "The Highland Oak" Stoltman and his brother Tom Stoltman,
Stoke based 6ft 3ins star Eddie, who turns 30 on January 15, is the only man to deadlift a historic half a tonne in strongman rules and he has the deadlift repetition world record after hoisting 350kg - or around 55 stone - a knee-crunching nine times in under a minute.
He is the first Briton to win the World Strongest Man title since Welshman Gary Taylor did it 24 years ago in 1993.
The only two other previous UK winners were Sheffield's Jamie Reeves in 1989 and two times champ Geoff Capes, who won in 1983 and 1985.
Eddie secured victory in Botswana by a solitary point over Hafthor Bjornsson, Iceland’s muscleman who featured in the hit TV show Game Of Thrones, with four times champ Brian Shaw coming third.
