Finally, Jon Culshaw will be playing alongside Debra Stephenson, with Culshaw playing for Starlight Grants and Stephenson competing on behalf of Julia’s House.
Speaking of his involvement, Duncan Bannatyne said: “I’m very, very nervous about coming on the show in front of a live audience. I just want to do my best and make as much as I can for Mary’s Meals, which is a brilliant charity. It’s an absolute privilege to be coming on with Greg, I think his gold medal win was brilliant – I just hope he knows more than I do!”
While Greg Rutherford added: “I’m both excited and nervous, and really looking forward to doing the show. I’ve seen it for years and years, but obviously taking part in the studio will be very different to watching at home! I’m determined to raise a lot of money for Sport England, and since Duncan’s a very clever businessman, I think between us we’ll hopefully do well.”
