Kelly Brook disclosed an unexpected connection to Madonna and her viral squatting challenge.
The 43-year-old model stated that she saw the singer perform and was taken aback by her renowned dancing movements many years before they became famous on social media.
In a flashback to the early 2000s, the iconic face recalled Madonna’s 2002 wedding to film director Guy Ritchie.
She revealed that the singer had been busting out her movements on the dancefloor following the wedding, which had taken Kelly by surprise.
The model was discussing her background with Heart Breakfast with JK and Kelly hosts when the ubiquitous TikTok habit of imitating the hitmaker’s actions was brought up.
‘Have you seen the Madonna squat Fitness Challenge, which is all over TikTok?’ she questioned the radio hosts.
‘There is a video of Madonna doing 15 jump squats all time perfectly, and it was from a performance of Music from her 2001 World Tour and people are trying to copy, it’s quite challenging.’
The star continued: ‘She’s in heels, I’ve actually seen her do this in real life, I was on a dance floor with her back in 2002 and she was doing that exact move. I can confirm she nails it.
‘It was it was her wedding; it was on the dance floor at her wedding and she just dropped down and started doing these squats, and I just I was just, in awe.’
One of the presenters then jokingly asked Kelly if she was able to complete the challenge herself, to which she replied: ‘…at the time, yeah maybe I could have had a squat-off, …not now, not with my lower back pain, all than gardening I’ve been doing’.
The renowned musician’s performance when she was 43 years old launched the global trend.
Madonna finished her two-hour performance with 15 jump squats, precisely timing each exercise to the beat of the music playing behind her and hardly breaking a sweat.
Fans have labelled the rapid set as their new go-to cardio finisher, with many straining to keep up with the popstar.
