A top military-style training camp near Grantham is set for an influx of celebrities determined to get in shape for roles on stage and screen.

TV Stars Thomas Craig and Ben McGregor were among the latest brave enlisters to Team Bootcamp, at Heydour House, Heydour.

The two were quick marching their way to new roles in the hit stage show Shang-A-Lang, written by Catherine Johnson (Mamma Mia).

During a week-long stay at the camp the stars were put through their paces by camp founder Craig Williams and his team of former elite military physical training instructors.

Training days at the boot camp begin at 7am with a challenging circuit session followed by a punishing calorie blitz on the custom built obstacle course.

The stars are given no quarter from the trainers during the four hours of intense training that ensues.

On the the plus side, Tom and Ben enjoyed luxurious rooms and tasty, nourishing meals.

Mr Williams said: “Working with celebrities of Ben and Tom’s calibre is a real privilege, but we usually find the celebs are struck by how everyday boot campers can inspirationally change their lives with us, week in and week out.”

Celebs expected at Heydour in the next few weeks include James Argent from The Only Way Is Essex and Simone Clarke, a finalist in Britain’s Next Top Model.

Previous visitors to the camp have included Binky Felstead, of Made in Chelsea, and Callum Best.

Access to boot camp sessions is available to local people.
