8D Having a bit of a bulge a reason not to eat? (6)
C?N?E? Convex? How parsed?

35D Firm meeting with success in Home Counties resort (10)
WHITSTABLE
W(ith) HIT=success STABLE = firm.
What's "Home Counties" (possibly = "SE") got to do with it?

Oh no! How embarrassing! I was confusing Whitstable with Whitby in Yorkshire.

Not too enamoured with vex = annoy = to eat, but it must be right.

Many thanks, AB and Kilowatt
