With the Rio 2016 Olympic Games less than a month away, some of Britain’s best loved faces from music, radio, TV, film and YouTube have come together to show their support for Team GB. 

Nick Grimshaw, Gethin Jones, Jodie Kidd and Kirsty Gallacher are among the famous faces that are fronting the Bring on the Great campaign – which aims to reignite the passion of London 2012 and ensure the athletes in Brazil feel the nation’s support. 

And this summer they are asking fans to show their support for Team GB’s athletes by wearing a Bahia band – the official supporters’ item and joining the Team GB fan club. 

“We’re asking the public to get behind our fantastic team of athletes in every way they can,” said Grimshaw. “Including with a visual show of support with a Bahia band.  

“No matter how far away the athletes are we know the support means a lot to them; we want to show them we’re in it with them and will be cheering them on from home.”
