TV presenter Caroline Flack surprised shoppers as she trained for Sport Relief in a supermarket.

She used a till in Sainsburys as a treadmill as preparation for this weekend’s Sport Relief Games, which include events at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

The X Factor host said: “It was hilarious to do my workout where I usually do my shopping, especially with store staff and shoppers looking on, but now I have the official kit I’m all set for the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games.”

A donation from each item of Sports Relief merchandise sold goes to poor and most disadvantaged people in the UK and around the world.

The Recorder would love to hear what you’re getting up to for Sport Relief this weekend.
