Andrea McLean smashes 10k race in just her underwear after 'nervous' start

Andrea McLean has just gone and smashed The Vitality London 10,000 after running the 10k race in just her underwear .

Yes, the 49-year-old stripped off as part of her new body confidence campaign and joined a number of other ladies in their run towards the finish line.

And despite getting off to a nervous start, it seems she completely nailed the run as she beamed when completing the race.

On her way to St James’s Park, in London, the Loose Women panelist documented her drive and confessed to her followers just how apprehensive she was.

Talking into the camera, the mother-of-two revealed: ‘This is it, we’re on our way, we are leaving 20 minutes later than we said we would.

‘I was slightly panicking thinking I’d forgotten things and then I wanted to put a little bit of make-up on, just so I didn’t frighten the cats as I was running around.’


She laughed: ‘And then I realised I didn’t put any sun tan lotion on after getting dressed, so I had to take everything off, and then put sun tan lotion on because I didn’t want to get burned.’

Explaining why she’d been making her very human mistakes, the presenter said: ‘But really it’s because I’m quite nervous, I’m quite nervous.’

She went on: ‘I’ve never done anything like this before, I’ve never done a race before. I feel like a little kid, where am I supposed to go? What am I supposed to do?’

Andrea explained: ‘There’s going to be all these normal people there and then I’m going to take my clothes off and stand there in my pants.’

The star’s Instagram went quite after that until she had completed the race – and she looked so, so happy.

Grinning away, and absolutely glowing, Andrea told her 209,000 followers: ‘We did it, we did it, we did it, we did it, that is the finish line, these are the people limping away.’

Prior to her run, the star had opened up about how she had been trolled before the race due to her size. 

According to Andrea, one of her followers said she was ‘too slim’ to take part and would have more of a following if she was ‘bigger.’

However, it turns out she is running the race in order to spread awareness of her scars, after being left insecure following her hysterectomy.
