Run set for The Liv­ing Room

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE Whit­sun­days is set to fea­ture on our tele­vi­sion screens again this year, with Chan­nel 10’s The Liv­ing Room film­ing on White­haven Beach on Satur­day.

TV per­son­al­ity Dr Chris Brown took part in the Great White­haven Beach Run on the week­end, con­quer­ing the 10.5km race.

If run­ning on sand wasn’t hard enough, there was also a strong head­wind to con­tend with on the re­turn jour­ney back down White­haven Beach.

“I’ve felt bet­ter but I’ve got to say it’s one of the most truly beau­ti­ful, spec­tac­u­lar runs you will see in the world,” Dr Brown said.

“...I had lots of chats along the way with dif­fer­ent peo­ple and ev­ery­one was in re­ally good spir­its.”

One of the peo­ple Dr Brown “chat­ted” with was Air­lie Beach Run­ning Fes­ti­val co-or­di­na­tor Wendy Downes OAM.

Ms Downes said she “stalked” her idol “ask­ing him if he would come to my event”.

“He’s such a lovely man,” she said, not­ing how thrilled she was when he of­fered to take a “selfie” of them both that’s scored about 2000 hits on her Face­book page.

“Ev­ery­one was get­ting their photos taken with him. I was look­ing for some­one to take the photo of us and he said ‘it’s ok, I can do that’. He’s got long arms,” she joked.

Dr Brown’s run­ning ad­ven­ture will be shown on Chan­nel 10 later in the year and the celebrity vet said it would be well worth watch­ing.

“We’ve got a few lit­tle sur­prises around Hamil­ton Is­land, which we can’t re­veal too much about,” he said.

“It’s very un­der­cover and it’s go­ing to show an in­ter­est­ing, never-be­fore-seen side of the is­land. We’re look­ing for­ward to show­ing the spec­tac­u­lar side but also the po­ten­tial hu­mor­ous side as well.”
