Arnie once lived here

Arnie the Terminator lived here for a year or so in the Sixties.

Location: 335 Romford Road, Ilford, E7 8AA

Description: This is the house where former Republican Governer of California and bodybuilder/movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger lived in 1966.

He trained with legendary bodybuilder Charles 'Wag' Bennett who had his gym very near by, but actually lived with him and his wife Dianne as well.

When Arnie came to London aged 19 he impressed at the Mr Universe competition one of the judges - Mr Bennett. He and his wife were impressed His trousers were flying at half mast, halfway up his calves, Bennett recalled, so Dianne took him off to buy some boots to close the gap.

The Bennetts invited Schwarzenegger to share their home with their six children, sleeping on the sofa. Bennett then devised a training programme for Schwarzenegger at his gym, teaching him how to pose. He also chose the theme music from the film Exodus as his posing music - a tune he used for years to come.

Dianne cooked him his favourite meal, turkey breasts - almost every hour on the hour. She also made him shirts in his favourite colours, fluorescent lime green and yellow. She also took charge of his English, which had been somewhat rudimentary on his arrival in London.
