Former X Factor star and girl band member Daizy Dance was the latest celebrity to take part in the Cracker 10:10 challenge today.
The Magnet Leisure Centre has been helping raise money for the Maidenhead Advertiser's Cracker Appeal by coming up with its own fitness challenge.
More than £700 has been raised to help fund Christmas parties for groups across Maidenhead as well as any day trips and events throughout the year.
The physical test consists of running on a treadmill for 10 minutes followed by 10 minutes cycling.
Prizes are awarded for those who manage to travel the furthest distance in the 20 minutes.
Daizy, who just missed out on the judges houses stage of this year's X Factor competition, managed to clock up an impressive 3.39 miles.
"It was really challenging and harder then I thought," she said.
The former Altwood School pupil, who used to work at the Holmanleaze fitness centre before finding fame with girl band Girl's Can't Catch, encouraged people to get involved.
"It's only 20 minutes of your life so everyone should take part," she added.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
