Comedian Bruce Devlin has spent the last month de-toxing and trying to get healthier for the New Year, and as far as he was concerned it was time for a break. Always keen to keep their presenters happy, The Hour sent him to a Scottish country mansion for what he thought was going to be a chance for him to relax and visit the spa.
Unluckily for him, his dreams of enjoying the pool and indulging in some complementary therapies were cut short when he realised he had to take part in a Burn It Boot Camp with a group of fitness fanatics:
“You’re all here because you signed up for boot camp,” barked John Laurie, the Burn It Boot Camp fitness coach. “It’s not going to be easy and it will be incredibly hard, but you will get the results you are looking for. I want 100 per cent commitment from you all. Is that clear?”
Bruce groaned: “I really need to speak to the manager, there’s been a mistake.”
For the duration of the Boot Camp Bruce wasn’t allowed to eat junk food, but it wasn’t long before he sneaked off behind a tree to scoff some sweet treats:
“You’ve no idea the pressure I’m under,” he moaned before being spotted by John and ordered back to undergo some more torturous exercise.
After spending the day running, lifting weights, doing hundreds of push-ups and winning a tug of war competition, it was finally time to relax:
“Well done, you’ve all completed your first day of Boot Camp,” said John. “You should all feel energised, healthy and full of life.”
Bruce lay collapsed in a heap on the grass completely exhausted:
“No more filming and no more fitness,” he gasped. “I must kill Michelle and Stephen.”
