Celebrities choose the TV moments that have shaped their lives. Athlete Rebecca Adlington takes a nostalgic look at the TV that helped set her on the path to Olympic success.

One of our most decorated athletes ever, Rebecca Adlington, joins comedy entertainer Brian Conley for a nostalgic look at the archive TV that helped set her on the path to Olympic success.

Among the TV shows that Rebecca loved growing up were the ultimate sitcom, Fawlty Towers, the original dating show, Blind Date, and one of the first viral adverts, featuring the Cadbury's gorilla. Rebecca also reveals her tactics for winning at Ready Steady Cook, tales of getting in on the Art Attack action with her sisters, and what it takes to become Britain's greatest ever distance swimmer.
