Louise Minchin, former BBC Breakfast presenter and fellow I’m A Celebrity campmate, was left in agony as she embarked on a massive bike ride through Argentina. Louise arrived earlier this week and will spend the better part of a month traveling the country with athlete Mimi Anderson.
On the third day of the expedition, Louise told fans that she found the challenge “very difficult”.
Wearing a helmet, sunglasses and head-to-toe cycling gear, Louise shared a clip on her Instagram Stories detailing how difficult she was to find the bike.
Always smiling, she told her 127,000 followers: “Third day of the cycling adventure. Mimi and I can’t even get up.
The camera then caught Mimi, who holds multiple Guinness World Records for her endurance, and she exclaimed, “I can, I’m up.” It’s because I didn’t sit down and you sat down.
