Speaking to The One Show on Friday, Holly admitted that the show was very ‘intense’ and tough on the celebrities.

She said: ‘This is not something they get voted off or a popularity contest, they are really challenging their minds and bodies.

‘All I can tell you is it was intense for everybody, medics were involved, and I was in tears at many many points throughout it.

‘It was kind of life changing, it is amazing, it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done.’

Wim has dedicated his life to showing others that they can achieve things they thought were impossible. 

He has previously used special techniques to control his mind and body while running a half marathon above the Arctic circle barefoot, submerged himself in ice for 1hr 52 mins, and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in just his shorts and shoes. 

Freeze the Fear with Wim Hof will air on BBC One this Spring. A BBC Three spin-off show will accompany the BBC One series.
