On Thursday 22nd March Gareth took part in “Sports Relief Warm Up” on BBC Radio 1 where he and other celebrities were set the challenge to run on a treadmill live on air he took to Twitter to post up some pictures of him hard at work on the running machine, tweeting before the challenge began:

On my way to Radio1 to run a mile on a treadmill, LIVE on air!! #sportrelief… I’m all track-suited up! #chav.

He posted this picture up on his Twitter page for fans to see with the caption :

Gareth Gates ‏ @Gareth_Gates  : Run Forest, run!!

There were some lovely pictures of him, his daughter Missy and his manager (Alison Parry) arriving at the event. I can’t believe how grown up Missy looks now (she will turn 3 on the 6th of April)  I had to laugh at a piece of video footage (Which I won’t put up because it is probably copy righted) at the door of the building. Gareth clearly wanted to get out of the crowd of paparazzi as quickly as possible and tried to carry Missy’s bag for her….she really wasn’t happy !!

An extract from the article in The Daily Mail online read

Cute! The pop star showed off his fatherly skills as he proudly entered the radio studios to support the charity
He was there to run a mile to help raise money for the charity in the run up to the TV extravaganza set to take place on Friday night.
The former Pop Idol star showed his support for the campaign by later picking Missy up while donning a Sport Relief T-shirt and carrying a water bottle also emblazoned with their logo  (The Daily Mail Online)

He managed to get the best time of 6:33 !! proudly tweeting West End Legend Kerry Ellis- Well done Gareth !!

Gareth Gates ‏ @kerryjaneellis1 well, I didn’t quite do it in 4mins… But did get the best time of everyone 😀 6:33 !! X
