â€œI Was Knackered And Iâ€™d Only Done Two Laps!â€ Davina Mccall Struggles During Training For The Bt Sport Relief Million Pound Bike Ride
The BT Sport Relief Million Pound Bike Ride team have been gearing up for their big challenge by undergoing a training session at Hillingdon cycle circuit with trainer Greg Whyte.
David Walliams, Fearne Cotton, Davina McCall, Patrick Kielty and Miranda Hart were put through their paces at the circuit session in preparation for their non-stop relay from John Oâ€™Groats to Landâ€™s End. The team are hoping to raise a whopping Â£1 million for Sport Relief in completing this mighty feat.
Trainer Greg Whyte said that the celebrities will be put through their paces during the challenge: â€œThis is cycling 1,000 miles across the toughest terrain in the UK.â€ Miranda found the training session difficult, struggling to keep up with the rest of the team, and even super fit Davina exclaimed â€œI was knackered and Iâ€™d only done two laps!â€

The courageous team will be setting off from John Oâ€™Groats and it will be approximately 80 gruelling hours of nonstop cycling before they reach Landâ€™s End. They will have to battle the elements at all hours of the day as they each take turns to cycle through wind, rain, and rough terrain in order to cover the 1000 miles and try to reach their massive Â£1 million target. Each celebrity will take turns cycling while the others cheer them on from the tour bus, their home for four days.
The money raised through this extraordinary challenge, with the help of BT, will be spent by Comic Relief to help vulnerable people living incredibly tough lives here in the UK and in some of the worldâ€™s poorest countries.
