Louis pops on a pinny for charity

Louis Smith swaps his pommel horse for a pinny as he joins the fund-raising efforts for this year's Sport Relief.

The Strictly Come Dancing winner and gymnast is among the sports stars who have slipped on a specially-designed apron created by Emma Bridgewater to promote the charity appeal.

Also posing in the designs are boxer Amir Khan, England rugby player James Haskell and Sky Sports News presenter Kirsty Gallacher. The aprons will also be presented to the winning celebrity chef in each of the heats of BBC2's The Great Sport Relief Bake Off, which is being broadcast this month.

Louis said: "I am extremely proud to be involved and hope with your help Sport Relief 2014 receives the support it deserves."

Others who have posed in the aprons are Olympic judo competitor Ashley McKenzie, table tennis player Will Bayley, Dan Whiston from TV's Dancing On Ice, speed skater Elise Christie, boxer Natasha Jonas and Channel 4 racing presenter Emma Spencer.

They will be available from retailers HomeSense and TK Maxx, as well as from, with at least half of the £12.99 price going to the charity.
