Olympic gold medal-winning cyclist Victoria Pendleton was a very special guest at the NSC on Tuesday evening.

The former track star was in the Isle of Man to produce a film for the BBC’s The One Show, which is set to be screened live from the Villa Marina in Douglas tomorrow night.

Describing the facilities as ‘inspiring’, the 33-year-old presenter played her part in proceedings by manning the start flag and congratulating all the racers on their efforts.

The One Show is being filmed in the island to coincide with the visit of the Commonwealth Games Baton, which arrives in the island tomorrow morning – see schedule here.

The programme will be presented by Chris Evans and Alex Jones and will look at the island’s preparations for the Games, to be held in Glasgow in July, focussing on our passion for sport, and cycling in particular.

Comedian and Isle of Man TT fan Ross Noble will be a guest on the show, which will also feature a piece on the how Pilates was developed in the Isle of Man by a prisoner of war during World War One.

Harris Promenade in Douglas will be closed from 6pm to 8pm while filming takes place.
