FIRST Dates supremo Fred Sirieix stripped off to show off his body as he prepares to turn 50.
The popular Frenchman posed topless on social media, mid workout session – much to the pleasure of his many fans.
Lifting weights in just a pair of black shorts, Fred uploaded a series of three snaps to his Instagram account.
He wrote: “I’m fifty at the end of the month.
“As much as I won’t probably be the world champion anymore I’m not ready to throw in the towel just yet!”
“You look awesome for 50!,” exclaimed one follower.
Another queried: “Fred where are you turning 50? You look a proud 40th Keep up the good work Fred you look great. 😊”.
