Victoria Pendleton fights back tears as she shows off her touching tattoo ... trends now
Victoria Pendleton, 43, broke down in tears as she shared her touching tattoo tribute to her late twin brother on Friday.
The Olympian took part in the Don't Look Down Stand Up To Cancer Special and appeared on the live telethon on Friday.
Standing alongside the other show's contestants, the group spoke about the challenges they needed to accomplish alongside show host Paddy McGuinness.
Victoria donned a black dress with a low square neckline, which beautifully showed off her tribute tattoo for her brother.
The tattoo is placed in the centre of Victoria's chest, so it's always near her heart, and shows a delicate drawing of an anatomical heart with Alex's name written across on a banner.

Co-host for the evening, Davina McCall, 56, comforted Victoria with a huge hug.
When discussing taking part in Don't Look Down, she told The Mirror: 'I needed to do something, get back into the swing of things and it was the perfect opportunity coming around at the perfect time.
'I feel very fortunate. It came to me pretty late – I think they were thinking I wouldn’t necessarily be interested in doing something so soon, and I was like, actually, no, I think it sounds really interesting'
In June, Victoria's twin brother Alex passed away at the age of 42 after battling an 'aggressive' brain tumour.
Graphic designer Alex was diagnosed with leukemia as a child and after more than three decades in remission his cancer tragically returned.
Paying tribute to her sibling in an Instagram post on Thursday, Victoria said that Alex would be 'painfully missed by many'.
