Yesterday morning singer Heidi Range joined crowds of Zumba enthusiasts for an intense workout ahead of her wedding to Radio DJ Dave Berry next year.

The 26-year-old member of the Sugerbabes was participating in a special launch class at London’s Virgin Active Moorgate with the dance craze’s founder Beto Perez. Perez, who is originally from Columbia, has flown over from Miami for a 12-hour tour whistle-stop of the UK. Five gyms participated, with some 300 members joining the workout throughout the day.

“It was really, really fun!” Range enthused afterwards. “I’m not usually very good at motivating myself so classes work much better for me. The Zumba class with Beto didn’t even feel like exercise because it was so fun, much more like a dance class.”

“My body weight can fluctuate quite a bit so I need to watch what I eat. Because I’m so short, if I put on just a couple of pounds it really shows so I have to be very strict on myself! The wedding’s next year and I’m definitely going to Virgin Active in the lead up.”

Asked how her preparations for the big day were going, Range added: “All the planning is going really well so far and I went out the other week with some family and spotted this gorgeous dress that I loved. I’ve still got time though so I’ll keep looking.”
