Sir Bradley Wiggins will teach celebrities bicycle racing skills on a new ITV show.
The retired cyclist – who was Britain’s first Tour de France winner in 2012 and won five Olympic gold medals – is looking to pass his experience on to famous faces as part of a more ‘Soccer Aid’ challenge late this year.
A source told The Sun newspaper’s Weird TV column: “The program will air as part of ITV’s ‘Soccer Aid’ shows in September, using sport as a starting point to raise money for a good cause. .
“It will be in the same vein as ‘Don’t Rock The Boat,’ which aired last year. On this show, a group of celebrities rowed across the UK.
“But this time, the expert helping the stars is just as famous and offers unbeatable advice.”
The one-off show – which doesn’t have a name yet – will see world record holder Bradley teaching stars how to ride track and road bikes.
And the schedule follows his turn as an expert on the Eurosport Tour de France in 2019, and his appearance as host of Comedy Central’s “Gods of the Game” last year.
The latter featured members of the public testing their skills against Olympians like Sir Chris Hoy, Rebecca Adlington, Nicola Adams and Sir Mo Farah.
Bradley recently revealed that he is planning a documentary – potentially titled “10 Years After Yellow” – in 2022, focusing on the last decade of his life after “A Year in Yellow”, which was released after his victory in 2012.
He said: “We made a pilot for that and a lot has happened in the last couple of years.
“It will be nice to finally get to talk about it and maybe show some stuff that shows how crazy everything has gone.
“This is the script running right now, when it comes out it will be next year.”
