Team GB Olympic hero Max Whitlock switched off ITV for an hour this morning as the network launched an hour-long shutdown to encourage more people to exercise.
The double gold medal winner pulled a lever at 9.30 on Saturday morning as part of the #IamTeamGB national sports day.

The TV silence lasted until 10.30am, meaning viewers had to wait an hour for an episode of Murder, She Wrote.
But the nation’s couch potatoes will at least be able to joinTeam GB athletes in a number of sporting events across the country.
