Watch: Personal trainer parks in parents parking space as he is too big

"I’ll just go and park in the same parent-and-child [bay], even if I’m on my own – I always do it.

"I don’t give a crap what people think of me. I’ll do what I want. I can’t fit out of my car – I’m too big. I don’t think it is selfish, I really don’t", says Chris.

Chris who is nicked named The Greek Stallion, argues it isn't selfish and was his "only option".

Chris took part in a UK documentary Britain’s Parking Hell 2020, which details all the little daily battles faced by British drivers trying to park their vehicles.

"People take it way over the top because you’re parking in a bloody parent-and-child bay. I still think anybody should be able to park there and that’s not being selfish.

"When people are taking up lines in parking bays or using two spaces that’s annoying but if someone needs to use the parent-and-child bay they should be able to do it without any judgement", he adds.

Since the show aired social media has been a buzz with outraged parents and carers.


"I watched this the other night. Even his partner was having a go at him for parking in parent and child spot. She pointed out because of people like him sometimes she has to park elsewhere and then struggles to get kids out of the car.. he didnt care", said one.

"I was with my child and that pr*ck took the space He’d get head butted clean out", said another.
