Sir Bradley Wiggins will teach celebrities some bicycle racing skills as part of a new ITV show.

The retired cyclist - who was Britain's first Tour de France winner in 2012 and won five Olympic gold medals - is looking to pass on his experience to some famous faces as part of a 'Soccer Aid' challenge later this year.

A source told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre TV column: "The programme will air as part of ITV’s 'Soccer Aid' shows this September, using sport as the starting point to raise money for a worthy cause.

“It will be in a similar vein to 'Don’t Rock The Boat', which aired last year. In that show, a group of celebrities rowed from one end of the UK to the other.

"But this time the expert helping the stars is equally famous and offering unbeatable advice.”

The one-off show - which doesn't have a name yet - will see world record holder Bradley teaching stars how to race bikes on both track and road.

And the programme follows his turn as Eurosport's Tour de France pundit in 2019, and his appearance as host of Comedy Central's 'Gods of the Game' last year.

The latter featured members of the public testing their skills against the likes of Olympians Sir Chris Hoy, Rebecca Adlington, Nicola Adams and Sir Mo Farah.

Bradley recently revealed he is planning a documentary - potentially titled '10 Years After Yellow' - in 2022, focused on the last decade of his life following 'A Year in Yellow', which was released after his 2012 win.

He said: "We’ve done a pilot for it and a lot of happened over the last couple of years.

"It will be nice to finally be able to talk about that and maybe show some stuff that shows how crazy it all got.

"That’s the running script at the moment, when it gets released, that’s going to be next year."
