BBC Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin, 52, has gone into detail about one challenge she will be taking on next month "virtually", via Instagram. The BBC favourite revealed it has an "exciting" yet "scary" aspect to it in view of her 63,000 followers.
Here is the exciting/scary bit
Louise said she was planning on running the London Marathon this year to raise money for Age UK.
However, the event which was originally set to take place in April, had to be postponed until October and has now been put on hold until next year.
Despite this, Louise revealed she can still go ahead with her own version.
Alongside a selfie, she penned: "This year, for the first time I was planning to run the @londonmarathon to help raise much needed funds for @age_uk whose work I have seen first-hand on @BBCBreakfast.

"As you will know, for amateur runners like me, the race has very sadly been postponed to next year, which means that potentially the charities lose out on a huge amount of money."
She went on to reveal: "BUT, here is the exciting/scary bit, I can still run the Virtual London Marathon on the 4th of October.
"I have 24 hours to do it on a course of my choice and I am still planning to do the 26.2 miles for @age_uk."
Louise then thanked those who have donated and sponsored her for the previous work she has done
