Many people start the new year with good intentions about eating healthily and getting more exercise and this chubby armadillo is on a new year health kick too.

One-year-old Gretel the armadillo has been put on a diet by zookeepers at Drusilla's Park in East Sussex after munching on too many insects and becoming overweight.
