Tamzin Outwaite reveals how sub-zero challenges have helped celebrities form unbreakable bonds

Tamzin Outhwaite was terrified when she was invited to join Freeze the Fear alongside Wim Hof ​​- but now says the under-zero challenge challenges her and
fellow celebrities have come together for an unbreakable bond.

She said: “I’m going to the sauna, I love the sauna, I love a hot break.

“Everything screams, ‘Don’t go in the cold’.”

But after being convinced and completing the show, she said of her fellow brave celebrities: “Even though we’ve only known each other for three weeks, I feel like I know them, some of them , better I know my old friends.”

Other stars on the BBC1 reality show include sports presenter Gabby Logan, football star Patrice Evra and professional dancer Dianne Buswell. Weatherman Owain Wyn Evans, singer Alfie Boe and Professor Green (Stephen Manderson) and DJ Chelcee Grimes complete the lineup.

Tamzin, 51, said the harsh nature of the show’s challenges meant they relied on each other for strength from day one.

She said: “We all joked about the fact that when we got home people wouldn’t understand, because you can’t explain it.

“And our nearest and dearest will be ‘Oh, my ice friends, my new best ice friends! “

“But when you go through a lot of trauma with people, I think there’s a bond there that’s pretty hard to break.”

Tamzin freely admits she was on the low side before filming the show.

The mother of two says the experience has helped her cope with the loss of her mother Anna to a heart attack in 2018, and also her ongoing battle with menopause.

She said: “There’s a feeling, when you go into menopause, it’s like, ‘Oh okay, it’s happening, we’re going down.’

“Whether it’s mood or career or excitement in life, whatever.

“Then you have a new experience like Freeze the Fear and it’s like ‘Oh well, it’s not over yet’.”

“I lost a little bit of confidence in myself and I think my confidence came back while I was there,” she said. “I came home feeling like, ‘Yeah, I’m fine.’







Celebrities have been pushed to their limits

In the course of the show so far, viewers have seen most of the stars open up about their most painful experiences.

Patrice spoke freely about the shame he still feels about being sexually abused by a teacher when he was 13 years old.

Gabby tells of her grief over the death of her brother Daniel in 1992 when he was 15 years old, and how Stephen reveals his father’s suicide and his ongoing battle with depression.

Tamzin says extreme athlete Hof’s breathing exercises are almost like taking a mind-altering drug.

She explains: “You’re holding your breath, so something almost happens that feels like it’s hallucinogenic.

“I think it’s kind of like where your soul and brain seem to go when you take those deep breaths.”

After the breathing exercises, Gabby tearfully believed that she had sensed Tamzin’s mother’s presence.

Tamzin and Gabby, 49, have formed a particularly close relationship, and now plan to work together on a new project.

Tamzin, best known for her role as Mel Owen on EastEnders, took months to agree to join the show, which was made by her producer cousin Dan Baldwin and presented by his wife Holly Willoughby.

Her stepchildren Florence, 13, and nine-year-old Marnie were terrified that she might have a heart attack like the one that killed their grandmother when she was 67 years old.

Tamzin, who lives with long-term partner and “dream stepmother” Tom Child, talks about it as a family that gives their minds a break.

She added: “I think it’s a fear – if you jump into ice-cold water, you’re going to have a cardiac arrest or something.

“A lot of people think so. We discussed it but then I went to the doctor and everything was fine.”

The hardest task, she said, was sitting still in the ice bucket.

Tamzin adds: “When you’re in ice cold water and you’re swimming, it feels more natural because you’re moving a little bit and staying warm.

“But it’s hard to sit still.”

It remains to be seen who of the group will make it through the series’ final challenge – bungee jumping from a 500-meter bridge.

Tamzin and a few others said there was no chance for them to participate when Hof showed it in the second episode.

“I didn’t think I had acrophobia – until I got there and saw the altitude involved,” says Tamzin.

After filming was over, the group was determined to continue the journey they had started.

Tamzin has now ended her morning shower with a 30-second cold breeze.

She said: “The feeling you have afterwards is amazing. Your skin tingles.

“It’s supposed to be really good for depression, your heart, a lot of things.”

Overall, she describes being on the show, which was filmed amid the beauty of the Italian Alps, as one of the best experiences of her life.

She said of her fellow competitors: “The camaraderie we all have with each other is actually pretty magical sometimes.

“We just laughed and laughed.

“I can’t imagine we’ll never connect often.

“We’ll all go to The Games to watch Chelcee play and then we’ll go to Soccer Aid to see her and Patrice play together.”

Freeze the Fear with Wim Hof ​​is airing on BBC1, at 9pm on Tuesdays.
