Steve Bruce has promised his wife he will go on a diet after unflattering paparazzi pictures of him on a Barbados beach were publicised.

The Hull manager says he was "disappointed" that the pictures made a national newspaper and that he was baffled that anyone would be interested.

"I don't think too many 55-year-olds look that good on a beach do they," he said, "but I have promised my good lady I will go on a diet.

"So watch out - I'm going to turn into the horriblest, most awkward b******d you have ever come across.

"I have had some letters saying it's nice to see someone relaxing in their own skin - not many mind!"
