A gym owner from Bolton has triumphed on an iconic TV show.

Betti Worth appeared on Gladiators over weekend.

The 31-year-old from Horwich took on Tuathlaith, a footballer from Belfast.

The Bolton woman was behind for most of the same and sustained an injury but made a comeback and went on to win.

She said after the remarkable turnaround: "It's unbelievable.

"Tuathlaith you were on fire, I can't believe it."

Speaking after she made it onto the show she said: “I made it.

“This doesn’t seem real. I am so thankful for my friends and family.

“Everyone has talked about Gladiators with me for nine plus months.

"It started off as an unrealistic dream and here I am."

Betti is the owner of 'The Farm with Betti' where she works as a fitness trainer, and she was previously a player for Chorley Women FC.

Gladiators returned to screens last month as a BBC revival of the 1990s action game show.

The series launched to an average audience of 8.37 million for its first episode on BBC One on January 13.
