Kate and Susanna donned combat trousers and personalised t-shirts to film at an obstacle course ahead of our Tough Mums challenge launching on the show in September.
Soon 50 Good Morning Britain mums will complete a 5k obstacle course, designed by Tough Mudder and featuring some of its most exciting signature obstacles, and our presenters will help cheer them on. The Tough Mums will push themselves to the limit mentally and physically as they take on 10 obstacles which will see them climbing walls, jumping into ice and crossing muddy pools.
For our promo, Susanna and Kate were filmed with a drill sergeant and are seen giving him a £20 note when he asks them to drop and give him 20.
Susanna Reid said: “We’re hoping to get some really inspirational mums taking part in the assault course for Tough Mums. It’s definitely going to push them to their limits but it will be a great challenge and they'll be able to raise money for charity too.”
Tune in on September 1st to find out about how to get involved with Tough Mums...
