In this new four-part large-scale celebrity series, 11 famous faces take on one of the world’s most difficult challenges. They have just 12 weeks to train for an ambitious relay swim across the English Channel in support of Stand Up To Cancer.
The celebrities in question are Olympic gold medallist Linford Christie, Coronation Street star Sair Khan, The Last Leg’s Alex Brooker, TOWIE stars James ‘Arg’ Argent and Georgia Kousoulou, Blue singer Simon Webbe, Love Island’s Wes Nelson, Hollyoaks actress Rachel Adedeji, television presenter Diane Louise Jordan and Linford Christie’s fellow Olympic gold medallists Tessa Sanderson and Greg Rutherford.
The brave 11, who are all barely able to swim, will be guided by a team of leading figures from the world of swimming, including Olympic silver medallist Keri-anne Payne and adventurer Ross Edgley, best known for being the first person in history to swim around Britain. The experts will be on hand to offer vital training and support to transform the celebrities into strong swimmers.
