Rugby's Mark helps rider tackle fitness
FORMER England rugby player Mark Regan is helping Bristol singer John Billitteri train for a Help for Heroes bike ride.
Mr Billitteri, 54, is raising money for the ex-serviceman charity by taking part in the charity's 2013 Hero Ride from Bristol to London.
He has previously raised £44,000 for Help for Heroes, after taking up the cause when his daughter Marisa was a contestant on TV talent show The X Factor in 2008.
She sang on a number one single for the cause and since then Mr Billitteri has hosted and performed in dozens of fundraising gigs across the city under his stage name Frankie Johns.

In his latest challenge Mr Billitteri, from Kingswood, will cycle from Bristol to the Help for Heroes' headquarters at Tedworth House in Salisbury, and ride 90 miles to Blackheath, where he will join more riders.
Mr Billitteri said: "Mark Regan is mentoring me and helping me to train and putting me through my paces."
