A TELEVISION personality is set to bring her mammoth fund-raising drive to Burton tomorrow.

Davina McCall is set to travel through the town as part of BT Sport Relief Challenge: Davina – Beyond Breaking Point challenge

The challenge is a bid to run, swim and cycle more than 500 miles from Edinburgh to London – entirely under her own steam.

She said: “My Sport Relief challenge is like an Iron Man on steroids.

“I have to propel myself without an engine from Edinburgh to London.

“My head is in the game, I am focused, and I’m going to do it.”

Sport Relief has raised more than £195 million since 2002.

The money raised by the public is spent by Comic Relief to help people living incredibly tough lives, both at home in the UK and across the world.
