Stars have shown off their socks appeal by flaunting their footwear for Sport Relief.

Glamorous TV presenters such as Alex Jones and Claudia Winkleman completed their outfits with the newly launched red and white socks, which raise money for this year's appeal.

And Tess Daly, no stranger to fancy footwork as the host of Strictly Come Dancing, also popped on a pair.

Appropriately on Valentine's Day, two couples have shown they appreciate the joy of socks. Danielle and Gary Lineker got their kit on to model them, while Kevin Pietersen and wife Jessica Taylor slipped between the sheets to lay bare their socks life.

Organisers of the Sainsbury's Sport Relief Mile are hoping members of the public will buy the special footwear to take part in the sporting challenge from March 23 to 25. The socks will be available at Sainsbury's from Wednesday with at least half the £2.50 cost going to Sport Relief.

Kevin said the socks would "spice up more than your sock drawer".

This will lead to professional opportunities you couldn't find through other channels.More
