STRICTLY dancing champion and popstar Harry Judd is on a mission to change the way people think about exercise following his struggle with mental health.

The McFly and McBusted drummer rose to success on the dancefloor in the tenth series of Strictly Come Dancing in 2012, but he is prone to debilitating anxiety and OCD.

For many years, exercise was the best way for him to keep his anxiety under control, but he has only recently been able to talk publicly about his struggle.

In order to promote fitness and general wellbeing, he decided to focus not only on looking better, but feeling better too.

His latest book, Get Fit, Get Happy, is part memoir and part fact-based and he will be coming to Waterstones Reading on October 26 for a meet and greet at 5pm.

He has developed a series of quick, varied and fun exercises, designed to be accessible to all ages and fitness abilities.

“I have used exercise to overcome the strains and stresses of some of the most difficult moments in my life,” Harry said.

“These are issues that I know many of us have, and I am excited to show how it is possible to use exercise to get your head in the right place, to feel good about life and to feel great about yourself.

“My Get Fit, Get Happy fitness plan is for everyone and can really make a difference.”
