An underwear tycoon strapped on a training bra as she spent a day going commando – at a gruelling military training centre.
Multi-millionairesss Michelle Mone was well and truly put through her paces when she visited the Royal Marines base 45 Commando RM Condor in Arbroath, Scotland.
The Ultimo mogul spent a day with the elite fighting force to get a taste of their punishing training course and to visit the camp’s Woodlands Garden, a remembrance garden opened in honour of the unit’s fallen comrades.
After a day of exhausting activities, Michelle, 41, spent time with Colour Sergeant Paul ‘Baz’ Barrett who suffered disabling injuries in Afghanistan from an improvised explosive device (IED).
Michelle said: “I never anticipated how tough it was going to be. I really was pushed to my limits. These guys are machines and do an amazing job for our country
“I’ve never witnessed such extraordinary physical strength, mental resilience and team cohesion. They all deserve as much support as they can get.”
Michelle was left battered and bruised, after taking part in target training, tackling the camp’s ‘death slide’, abseiling from 100ft, and participating in a gruelling two-mile gun run, in a bid to raise money to maintain the base remebrance garden.
