I played for Worcester City Ladies and was bodybuilding superstar… now I'm appearing in hit BBC show reboot | The Sun

FORMER Worcester City Ladies player Livi Sheldon once swapped football for bodybuilding.

And she is now set to feature in the comeback of hit show Gladiators.

Sheldon had a passion for sport from the age of six when she begun playing in a boys football team.
