While most enjoy the lights in a car, on a tram or during a light stroll, the best selling author took things one step further and enjoyed a run around the illuminations.

Afterwards, he took to Facebook to share a picture stood in front of the iconic Big One.

He captioned it: “Loved Blackpool last night…

“Great reception, great people and a great town! Had to get out after and run around for a bit… It’s the lights, I couldn’t resist!”

The Mind Over Muscle show was billed as bringing the ‘elements’ to the audience through lighting, sound and set to “recreate what mental strength it took behind the scenes for Ant to complete his recent SAS series and his huge Everest challenge”.

It also included Ant giving audience a ‘motivational journey of self-help and self-discovery’.

Ahead of the show, he said: “I am so excited to take my brand new show on the road. I want to bring my recent journeys to life and show how mental strength can help overcome huge challenges. The mind is stronger than muscle and I promise to take audiences on an incredible journey”
