A man from Bonymaen, who overindulged over Christmas, is hoping for a bout of violent sickness and diarrhoea to help shift his Christmas timber.

Pete Bowen, 42, has enjoyed hearty breakfasts of Celebrations, sausage rolls and Carling over the last two weeks, but is paying the price for it now as he’s encroaching on size large pants from his traditional medium.

Bowen said: “There’s a chance I may have eaten a box of After Eights this morning, I don’t want to dwell on it, it’s in the past.

“This is about looking forward, it’s about my Matalan straight leg jeans looking less like skinny fit ones.

“It’s also about reaching my ‘new year, new me’ goals without having to do any exercise whatsoever.”

Bowen’s girlfriend Theresa Connell said: “He’s been folding down the waistband on his boxers and I caught him stretching his new Rocha John Rocha pyjama bottoms until they ripped a bit.

“He acted slightly concerned but then he went and ate a packet of scotch eggs and a selection box.”

Bowen added: “I’ve begun not washing my hands after the toilet visits, which have been more frequent of late, and eating out of date meat.

“I’m sure I’ll be back to my pre-Christmas weight in no time without having to change my diet or fork out for all this gym nonsense.”
