Boris Johnson has found himself at the eye of yet another funding storm following reports that Tory donors were asked to foot the bill for his personal trainer and a nanny. The Prime Minister earns a more-than-comfortable salary of £157,372 a year, yet he has told friends that he needs to earn about £300,000 to keep his head above water, according to The Sunday Times. A source told the paper that it was “received wisdom” that the PM is permanently broke.Following rumours that the lavish renovations of his Downing Street flat were settled by a Tory donor, it has now emerged that Johnson may have asked other financial backers to fund his childcare and weightloss drive, too.
Jack Whitehall wants to "bulk up" after being inspired by Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.
The 33-year-old actor isn't known for his hulking physique but he's been motivated after working with the former WWE wrestler on 'Jungle Cruise'.
He told the 'Private Parts' podcast: "I am trying to cut down on carbs. I have got a personal trainer and I am trying to get in shape.
"I think if you drink the protein powder the muscles to straight in.
"I spoke to my agent Ryan and I said, 'For the right role I would be willing to bulk up'. And he said, 'That's not how it works. You have got to bulk up first and then you get the role.' "
The Rock Shared Why He Never, Ever Quits a Workout Early
He drove the point home with a clip from the 'Young Rock' finaleFamous for his intense workouts, Johnson claims that he never cuts a training session short, even if that means leaving other people waiting. The wrestler-turned-actor shared the relevant clip from the show on his Instagram, and provided some context for what he calls a "true and intense story but a defining one.
The two co-stars worked out together while working on the new Disney blockbuster, and Jack was given access to Dwayne's travelling gym.
He added: "The Rock has his own gym that travels around with him called the Iron Paradise.
"I was invited in. It's a very sacred space and very few are allowed in.
"I went on one exercise bike he had in the gym and he was doing the lifty one with a big chain around his neck."
However, it hasn't all been plane sailing for the comedian, as he previously dislocated his rib during one of their workout sessions.
Taking to his Instagram account, the funny man uploaded a photograph of The Rock lifting some heavy weights in the gym while he's lying on a massage stretcher.
He accompanied the shot with the caption: "So billy big b******s @therock is in his gym pumping copious amounts of Iron for fun.
"I pop on an exercise bike for twenty minutes and end up in Hospital with a dislocated rib. Doctor asked if I was in an unnatural position.
"Indeed - the TV monitor had the movie 50 First Dates on and I was craning forward to read the subtitles.
"X-Ray, two shots, trip to a chiropractor and a sports massage later and it looks like I will survive. (sic)."
