The pair were part of a group of famous faces who scaled Mt Kilimanjaro last year for Comic Relief, and now they’re pulling on their hiking boots once more – this time for Breast Cancer Care. Along with Alexandra Burke, Pixie Lott, Holly Willoughby and Abbey Clancy, the stars will head to South America in September.
“The Inca trek is something I have always wanted to do – Fearne and I had the idea a while ago and we’re excited that the other girls have signed up,” Denise told The Daily Mirror in the UK. “Ever since we climbed Kili we have been looking for a new challenge.”
The trek will see the stars hike over 80km through Amazon rainforest and over hilly and rocky terrain. The trail will take them to high altitudes through some of Peru’s most beautiful scenery, finishing at Machu Picchu.
“Several of my friends have breast cancer and I wanted to do something to show I support them and the thousands of other women who are dealing with the disease right now,” said Denise. “I’m hoping to help raise lots of money to ensure Breast Cancer Care can be there for anyone affected by breast cancer.”
The charity also has limited opportunities for members of the public to meet the stars as they finish their trip and embark on an Inca adventure of their own. Your first night will be shared with Denise Van Outen and celebrity friends at an intimate gathering as they celebrate completing their trek and will be there to wish you luck on your adventure. You can share their experiences and be there to congratulate them on their last night.
