“Martin is clearly an excellent household man and he lives the life outdoors the health club in all probability higher than me – possibly that makes it extra equal.
“I am going up (in weight) like a fats pig so he’s in camp coaching on a regular basis whereas I’m sitting again consuming desserts, then I get a cellphone name saying that is what you’re getting, go to camp and prepare and struggle,” Saunders revealed.
