Welcome back to school, Mr Britain

School teacher nailed Class 1 to bring NABBA Britain title back to classroom – and he is now a NABBA Pro to boot

ESSEX PE teacher Matt Griggs was top of the class on Saturday – winning NABBA Class 1 Mr Britain and securing his NABBA Pro card.

Griggs, who three weeks ago was planning nothing more than a summer cut, dominated his category with his superior shape and muscular development. All helped with a McDonald's the night before.

He returned to his job as a PE teacher at William Edwards School in Essex after the half-term this week. And the kids have given him a new name.

He said: "There has been the usual banter with the students about the fake tan etc! But they are also interested in how I’ve done. A few are now referring to me as Mr Britain not Mr Griggs!"

Griggs has a few more competitions up his sleeve for this season. But his main focus now will be his debut as a NABBA Pro at the iconic Mr Universe competition. That takes place at the Birmingham NEC on November 3.

Nine NABBA Pro cards were awarded in total across the British Finals on Saturday. Class 3 winner Adam Hickey also secured his, while taking the overall title. His victory came just a week after his class and overall triumph at the NABBA North West.

There were also NABBA Pro cards for Class 2 athlete Tim Rosiek, Classic Physique winner Gavin Morris, Over 45 Men's Physique Jason Bond, Bikini Open athlete Sophie Occleshaw, Over 35 bikini competitor Elaine Rea, Men's Physique athlete Jonathan Fan and Miss Trained Figure Layla Allen.

NABBA are now working towards reintroducing their Pro League. Class winners only were provided by NABBA and can be seen in our results section here.
