Virgin London Marathon 2013 Celeb Barometer

Want to know how your fave celebs go on in the London marathon? (For fave, read anyone who ran and is occasionally on the telly)

So here they are, the celebrity marathon times from Virgin London Marathon 2013. Did you beat Cheryl Baker? Add your time in the comments box below if you fancy.


♦ Sophie Anderton – 6:53 A gammy knee from mile three means Anderton is the slowest celeb on our barometer at 6:53. Not even close to her 2006 PB of 4:45. Bad times.
Cheryl Baker  (The bird from Bucks Fizz) – 6:17 An injured Chezza had cortisone injections in her foot to help her get through the race. Got to love Cheryl (once sat behind her on a plane to Mexico. She was in economy).
Amy Childs – 5:47 It wouldn’t be a celeb barometer without a TOWIE cast member. SPOTTED: Walking at mile 13 with melting make up.
James Atherton (Hollyoaks) – 5:26 We saw James. Got excited as we thought we knew from running club, then realised he was off the telly.
Katherine Jenkins – 5:26 Jan Moir of The Daily Mail gave Kath stick for running in fake eyelashes, diamond studs and big shades. Ms Jenkins replied with some kick ass tweets. Highlight ‘I adore & support other women and I only wish you could do the same. I ran on Sunday in memory of my father & to raise money (£25,000) for an excellent charity (@macmillancancer) who helped him when he was dying…’ And so it went on. Read the full tweet here.
Iwan Thomas – 4.36 He might be able to beast us in the 400m but we win out over 26.2 miles.
Kelly Sotherton – 4.28 The former heptathlete and sprinter just beat fellow Olympian Iwan to the finish.
Sian Williams – 4:26 With a sprint finish – go Sian!!
Tom Scurr (Hollyoaks) – 4:09 You have no idea who he is do you?
Michel Roux Jnr – 4:07 This was Michel’s 20th marathon! His pb is 3.13. He’s faster than other chef/runner Gordon Ramsey. Is it wrong to fancy Michel?
Nikki Sanderson – 4:02 She played Candice in Corrie, was a stylist for Status Quo, appeared in The Vagina Monologues and now she’s added another string to her bow….a 4:02 marathon.
Sophie Raworth – 3:44 The BBC newsreader is becoming a regular on the London Marathon scene. In 2011 she did it in 6:22 (after collapsing at mile 24)
Harry Judd (McFly) 3:31 Pretty good going Harry, pretty good.
