Cast members from ‘Coronation Street’ and ‘Emmerdale’ are taking part in the Tour de ITV.

A host of famous faces from the popular soaps including Gaynor Faye and Jamie Shelton have signed up for the charity biking challenge on July 1, which involves cycling 60 miles from the Rover’s Return pub in Manchester to Emmerdale’s local, the Woolpack pub, in Yorkshire.

The ride has been organised by Join In, an Olympic and Paralympic legacy charity which highlights the importance of volunteers in putting together a sports event, so many extra ‘Corrie’ stars will be helping the fitness fanatics along the way.

Jamie – who plays Emmerdale’s Robbie Lawson – enthused: ”It’s great to part of the ITV Local Heroes campaign inspiring more people to volunteer at local sports clubs allowing others to enjoy more sport. I think the ride will be a lot of fun, and a great way to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.”

The cycle includes a section of the Tour de France route in the Pennines ahead of next month’s Yorkshire Grand Depart in the world famous cycle race.

Sara Hanson, ITV’s Head of Corporate Responsibility, said: “The Tour de ITV is a great way that we can go that extra mile during a fantastic summer of sport and a perfect opportunity to showcase the essential role of the volunteer behind any big or small sporting event.”
