Man branded the ‘belly king’ after being able to go from ripped to beer belly in just seconds

Warning: Do not try this at home.

Forget questionable holiday resort entertainment - one man has given a whole new meaning to belly dancing with his impressive abdominal skills.

Simon Henderson, otherwise known as ‘The Belly King’ has the incredible ability to pose with shredded abs one minute and a huge belly in the next. Check out his party trick here:

The 48-year-old has amassed a huge online following after performing a bizarre trick with his stomach that has tricked onlookers.

Simon, a bank clerk from Medway, Kent, is able to protrude his own belly massively using just his sheer strength, with some viewers saying that he looks ‘pregnant’.

His bizarre feat started off as a party trick which he copied from his dad, but has now led to him becoming an online hit.

Simon's videos have now been viewed over three million times revealing his huge belly, which he trained in a way that makes them incredibly flexible and able to go both outwards, and inwards.

He said: "I make light-hearted fun videos using my only 'talent' at my disposal, apart from extreme grape catching.

"I soon found I had plenty of material to keep me busy with my talent."

Simon is an unlikely champion of body positivity for those who see his videos.

He said: "I like to think that I'm an advocate of body positivity whatever you look like.

"I show confidence when I'm big and people react positively to that as I'm putting myself out there online with a big f***ing belly and yet still full of confidence, so I think it's a good thing.

"I love the reactions from people, thinking that I'm pregnant or that I have a hernia or hearing how their jaw dropped when they saw my belly makes me happy, and I know I've done my job in showing them something that they didn't expect."

Henderson's recent video that propelled him to the For You Page of millions on TikTok was a belly reveal video using a tight compression top.

He added: "I love the attention that my viral video got with the compression top.

"I was feeling sad as I was trying to build up a channel again from scratch and only had like 100 subs or less until I came up with the compression content idea and went out at lunchtime to get it from Sports Direct.

"I took it home that night and filmed three videos with it, and now, off the back of that, my channel is becoming credible again."

Whether you have a beer belly, abs, or both like Simon, he's right - we should all be confident no matter what skin we're in.
