Una Healy reveals leg injury as she prepares to race in 4x100m relay


Singer Una Healy is swapping the stage, for the race track as she prepares to take part in the 4x100m relay at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

The big event will take place this Thursday, in the city’s Alexandar Stadium.

Una will be competing as part of Comic Relief’s All Star edition of the competition, which will be raising money for a host of deserving charities.

The Saturdays star will be running the relay with her all-star team of Scottish rugby union player Thom Evans, comedian Darren Harriott, and TV presenter Mark Rhodes, who will be representing team blue in the competition, which will be captained by Paralympian Ellie Simmonds.


The Heart of Saturday Night host shared her delight at taking part in the event.

Writing on Instagram: “I am so excited to be joining [ComicRelief] and [Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games] and [BBC] in an All-Star version of the Commonwealth Games this Summer. It’s all to help raise life changing money so make sure you tune in on 8th August on BBC One to watch Sport Relief All Star Games: Birmingham 2022 Team Blue.”

But while she is looking forward to the race, Una also shared the unfortunate news of an injury which was making training challenging.

Writing: “I will hopefully be all good on the day as I have suffered a quad strain so I am having some physio and thankfully it’s shaping up well! Wish me luck.”


However, her teammates showed her some support, with Darren Harriott commenting: “We got this!” with a blue love heart emoji. 

While Mark Rhodes said: “Smash it” and Thom Evans wrote: “Let’s go!”

The official comic relief account also sent Una some well wishes. Writing: “It’s coming around so quickly! Hope you have a speedy recovery and see you on Thursday”

Here’s wishing Una the best of luck at the competition.
