Joining us in Southport is Jordan Williams, who finished in the top 10 at Mr World 2014, who will be here as part of our presenting team during the filming of the challenge events.

43 contestants have now arrived, with a further 4 due in the next 24 hours. Sadly 3 nations can now no longer make it from the original 50, but it hasn’t dampened many spirits, with every representative raring to go.
