Miranda Hart releases an exclusive DVD featuring brand new comedy sketches together with fitness routines.
Miranda Hart is to bring her unique brand of comedy and tom-foolery to fitness, with the release of never-seen-before comedy and fitness DVD Miranda Hart’s Maracattack, which is exclusive to DVD and Digital Download to Own. It’s the first time the incredibly popular entertainer has issued a DVD and Digital only release, which will be available on 18th November 2013.
This is a DVD with a difference. Miranda Hart’s Maracattack is an authentic fitness routine but one that is wholly unique, and skilfully combines exercise and comedy. Viewers will be laughing as they exercise.
Miranda says “Maracattack is based on one key concept. Fun. For fitness should be fun. Bear with as I coin a compound word – Funness. You will want to exercise. It’s about playing, not ‘working out’ and play helps your body, but also frees your mind. Without giving too much away, it involves maracas, classic pop tunes, and is as much fun as a riotous camp, cheesy disco. There is no need to dread the gym anymore.”
And for those who love their comedy, the DVD features brand new sketches where Miranda will be joined by friends Patricia Hodge, Sarah Hadland and Tom Ellis, as well as an unmissable guest appearance from Kirstie Allsopp.
Miranda’s co-host on the DVD is fitness expert Amelia Watts. The DVD includes a warm-up, 20-minute cardio session, a 5-minute high intensity cardio routine and 10-minute strength exercises for arms, core, legs and bums. During each workout Miranda and Amelia will work at different levels, so viewers can follow either depending on their own ability. Miranda’s friends Sarah Hadland and Tom Ellis also join her for some of the programmes. Some of Miranda’s favourite feel-good tunes provide the soundtrack to the routines, including songs from Kylie, Take That and the Monkees. With Maracattack, Miranda has created a great comedy DVD as well as a new exercise concept that is perfect for those new to fitness or for those with more experience. It’s the new craze waiting to happen.
Fiona Eastwood, Director BBC Worldwide Consumer Products said “We are thrilled that Miranda has chosen to release her first comedy fitness DVD with us. This will be the perfect Christmas gift for Miranda’s many fans, whilst also providing a great workout for those who have never considered using a keep-fit DVD before.”
