‘The BBC’s Freeze the Fear is a self-help guide disguised as entertainment’

It’s a relief not to hear the words ‘terms and conditions’ or ‘bill payer’s permission’, but it does mean the movie lacks a bit of danger, guest columnist on television Emma Bullimore said

Have you heard of Wim Hof? Me neither.

But the BBC has given him his own show, and you’ll definitely have to grab a cup of hot water and cover yourself with a blanket.

Set in snowy Northern Italy, Holly Willoughby and Lee Mack introduce “Iceman” Wim, who harnesses the power of cold to gain control of his own mind.

That’s right, he thinks ice baths, ice baths, and running around in the snow are the keys to inner peace and serenity. I bet his energy bill is the cheapest in the country.

Celebrities, as we know them now, hate being in their comfort zone.

They always volunteer to go to these kinds of shows to avoid it – it has nothing to do with the money – so a group that includes actress Tamzin Outhwaite, sports presenter Gabby Logan, singer Alfie Boe and former Soccer player Patrice Evra signed up to learn the Wim method through a series of chilling challenges. First, they were taken to an ice hole where they had to jump into freezing cold water.

It’s not something I want to make fun of, but compared to some of the things we see on I’m a Celebrity, it actually looks pretty mature.

Of course, the challenge was greeted with dramatic reactions and panic, and weatherman Owain Wyn Evans was super nervous about the prospect, but he made it.

I’m sure athletes who take an ice bath every day have rolled their eyes at histopathology.

The next mission is to head forward down a cliff, teaching the importance of mind over matter. It’s disturbing but not particularly unique – which is something we’ve seen Bear Grylls do many times before.

I was a bit confused when I heard that Holly and Lee would be presenting the show together, but it’s actually a combination that really works.

You’ll get the sense that hippy Holly is practicing Wim’s techniques at her hotel, while Lee is doing her best to keep a straight face – and a combination of her open-mindedness and nostalgia. suspicion is probably what makes this program work.

Notably, there were no votes for this series and no one was sent home after each mission.

It’s a relief not to hear the words “terms and conditions” or “bill payer’s permission,” but that means the series lacks a bit of danger.

Ultimately, Wim is trying to provide us with a self-help manual thinly disguised as entertainment, but I’m not sure Britain is ready to accept his methods. what level.

Although we are used to the cold.
