Also training for the most vertigo-inducing high wire walk imaginable are adventurer and motoring expert Charley Boorman, TikTok star GK Barry, content creator and comedian Fats Timbo and Olympic champion cyclist Victoria Pendleton.
Paddy McGuiness comments: “This team is outstanding. Everyone has come together and is giving their all at our training camp in the Austrian Alps. I’m not sure if we’re quite ready to tackle the high wire, but we’re definitely going to give it our best shot.”
The team have all been touched by cancer and are hoping to raise a substantial sum for Stand Up To Cancer. They are currently undertaking a summer training camp in the Austrian Alps, tutored by the world’s foremost experts in high wire walking. They are being coached to conquer their fears as they face a series of physically and mentally demanding training exercises and tasks designed to transform them from total beginners to those capable of scaling the heights. It’s an emotional journey as they attempt to overcome their individual anxieties whilst reflecting on the impact cancer has had on their lives.
At the end of training, Paddy will lead the group as they tackle a feat never before attempted in a final secret challenge that has yet to be revealed. All they must remember is the key advice: Don’t Look Down!
