From: Cosmo UK
Foody legend Adam Richman will be showing us his ball skills by playing in Soccer Aid this Sunday ( June 8), and to celebrate he's only gone and got his kit off in this month's Cosmo. Yep, the man who became a household name for nailing giant pizzas in minutes for his TV show Man v. Food is now in mighty fine shape after losing 70 pounds (five stone). Adam told Cosmo, "To go from hating the way I looked to being a Cosmo centerfold is a profound honor. If you're a guy who's always been the fun-to-be-around teddy bear, then all of a sudden people are viewing you as sexy it's nice."
And underneath that newly honed chest of his is a golden heart too. Instead of a double cheeseburger it's the charity double as he's not only raising money for UNICEF in Soccer Aid this weekend, he has stripped for Cosmo to raise awareness of the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle to protect yourself against cancer for Cancer Research UK.
This Sunday he will play alongside Sam Worthington and Gordon Ramsay in 'The rest of the World' side playing against the England team which includes Dominic Cooper and Olly Murs. "Taking part in Socceraid was a big motivation to stay fit. I actually cried when I was asked to take part. If I was still 200lb-(14 stone) plus, people would have said, 'Maybe you can be a mascot, but I don’t think you can play.' Now, I do intense workouts involving plyometrics, intense running, ball skills drills - I barely have enough energy to get into the shower at the end of the day!" Cheer Adam on this Sunday from 6pm on ITV1 on and see his full naked centerfold shoot in this month's Cosmo out now.
