Sink or Swim for Stand Up To Cancer airs on Channel 4 from Tuesday, August 27th 2019.
Ross Edgley is one of the swimming experts mentoring the celebrities in their Channel swim training.
He describes himself on social media as an author, adventurer and swimmer and without Ross, the celebrities taking part in the show for SU2C may have just about given up already.
Ross covers everything from physical strength to nutrition on Sink or Swim and had the chance of going through James Argent’s kitchen cupboards and helped Arg turn things around.
He’s is pretty much a walking, talking Greek God in terms of physique and it turns out that he’s much more than just a fitness buff…

Body Goals? ?♂️This time last year I was 105kg of pure “sea bulk”. I was heavy and durable and I was SO incredibly proud of that body since it’s the one that swam 1,780 miles around GB?? Today I’m 90kg. I’m lighter, leaner and faster and equally proud I’m running (and swimming) my fastest 10km ?? My point (again) is: Make your body an instrument NOT an ornament and celebrate any form of “athletic aesthetic” that comes from doing what you love ? From the GIANT quads of rugby players to the broad shoulders of swimmers ? With that said, what’s your favourite body part from your sport?
