Unfortunately, her dress comes up over her head and reveals her underwear - for all the crowd to see. Luckily, homeware company owner Katie saw the funny side - describing her trip as "hilarious".

She said: "I'm not sporty at all, but [my daughter] kept begging me. In the end I agreed to the race - I knew I'd come last.

"I just tripped over my own feet - I think my body was just moving too fast for my legs! I'm so clumsy, I'm always falling over.

"I was humiliated at the time, but it is what it is! I flashed my underwear which is obviously embarrassing but you just have to own it.

"Looking back, it's hilarious - definitely the funniest thing I've ever done in my life!"
