Sir Mo Farah is one of the best long-distance runners in the world – but he’s now taking on a completely new challenge.
Mo made history by winning the 2012 and 2016 Olympic gold medals in both the 5,000 and 10,000 metre races.
And now the athlete is one of the celebs appearing on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! on ITV and will undertake gruelling challenges to win food.
10 new celebrity campmates have headed to historic Gwrych Castle in Wales for the first time ever.
Mo’s family, including his wife, Tania Nell, will no doubt be cheering him on from home, just like she would be at the finishing line of his races.
Who is Mo Farah’s wife?
Mo is married to Tania, who he met while in school in London after he became friends with her brother Colin.
At the time Mo was living with his aunt after coming to London at the age of eight from war-ravaged Somalia.
Tania’s mother Nadia told the Evening Standard that the chemistry was evident from the start.
Nadia said: “She was a couple of years below him at school, but I think he always liked her and they’d hang out a lot together.
“Later when Tania got into athletics as well, completing in the heptathlon for her school and her count, they got even closer.”

The couple tied the knot in 2010 at a lavish wedding ceremony in Richmond.
There were many big name athletes in attendance, including Paula Radcliffe, Steve Cram and Jo Pavey.
A year after they got married Mo and Tania moved to Portland, Oregon so the runner could train full time with the Nike Oregon Project.
Tania keeps a low profile, but has previously admitted she misses Mo when he is training around the world.

She told The Telegraph: “It’s hard but it’s something we’ve had to cope with since we first got together really.
“Mo was going away a lot from day one, so I had to get used to that pretty quickly.”
Do the couple have children?
The couple have three children together, and Tania also has daughter Rihanna from a previous relationship, who Mo treats as his own child.
The couple welcomed twin daughters Aisha and Amani in August 2012.
In 2015 Mo and Tania had a son called Hussein.
