Our Portable Heaters Keep Christine Bleakley Warm For Sport Relief

For avid viewers of the BBC’s The One Show, you’ll know that Christine Bleakley has never shied away from an active challenge and for Sport Relief this year she wanted to do something really tough.

Christine rose to the challenge by water-skiing across the English Channel! Just her and a couple of planks of wood took on one of the world’s busiest shipping channels – in icy winter conditions! Christine had never even been near a water ski before her training started in October.

In a recent episode, Christine was put through her paces by some of the greatest British athletes ever, 3 legendary world champions in fact; 4 time Olympic Champion Sir Matthew Pincent, Double Olympic gold medallist Dame Kelly Holmes and Heavyweight Boxing Champion of the World David Haye to get her super fit for the challenge.

Eagle eyed viewers will have spotted a number of Andrews Sykes portable electric heaters placed around David Haye’s training gym to keep the environment at the optimal temperature for training. See the episode below and don’t forget to look out for our portable heaters!
