The Olympic athlete appeared in YouTube’s latest documentary series, which tells the inspirational story of famed YouTuber Behzinga.
Dame Kelly Holmes was booked through MN2S to appear in an upcoming YouTube Originals production, How To Be: Behzinga. The three-part documentary follows Ethan Payne, better known under his YouTube name Behzinga. With over 25 billion views, Payne is one of the UK’s most popular gaming YouTubers and founder of The Sidemen YouTube collective. After shooting to fame thanks to his online content, he grew unhappy with his 16st physique and made a commitment to get in shape after being asked to run the London Marathon for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Payne then went through a radical lifestyle transformation, totally revamping his diet and exercise routine and losing a total of four stone: he is now an endurance athlete. How To Be: Behzinga documents the course of this transformation.

“Two years ago if you’d have told me I’d be running a marathon I’d have laughed in your face. If you told me I’d be doing the stuff I’ve done in this doc, I would have said you’re crazy.”Behzinga
