GMTV icon returns

Fitness icon Mr Motivator is set to lead the early morning warm up session at Austrian event Snowbombing.

As entwined with the 90s as bum-bags (which he also wore) Mr Motivator has slid from pubic attention in recent years. As the fad for keep fit exercises is replaced by a generation of gym fanatics, the fitness guru has bee pushed from television.

But for any school kid who was woken up by their older sister doing sit ups with baked bean tins in her hands, Mr Motivator remains a legend. The latest addition to the bill at Snowboming, the fitness icon will lead warm ups and warm downs for those taking part in the spectacular Austrian event.

The one time GMTV mainstay will join a line up littered with stars. Fatboy Slim is set to complete his obligations to the Mayrhofen event, after pulling out last year's show in order to enter rehab.

Now fresh and fighting fit, it's not known if Norman Cook will attend those early morning exercise sessions. However Fatboy Slim is set to play a special DJ set, alongside some spectacular names.

Editors returned last year with their suitably glacial third album, and the English post-punk group will fit in well at the winter sports event. Joining the band will be Manchester epic indie types Doves with Friendly Fires keeping up the reputation of the new school.

Belgian beat boffins 2ManyDJs are due to take part, with Cumbrian extroverts Wild Beasts also due to appear.

With tickets for Snowbombing on sale now, the Austrian event can only enhance its reputation as one of the finest music and winter sports festivals around.

Snowbombing takes place between April 5th - 10th.
