Rochelle Humes revealed that the "Olympics is a special time for me"

"The Olympics is a special time for me," The Saturdays singer Rochelle explained. "During London 2012 I got married on the day of the Opening Ceremony, and what better way to celebrate this year, than gathering as a family and watching our athletes make the whole country proud out in Rio."

Explaining why she got involved in the Bring on the Great campaign, she added: "I will be cheering so loudly, I'm sure they'll hear me. It would mean so much for everyone to get behind our athletes, so make sure you guys leave your own message for the team via the Fan Club at"

Meanwhile, radio presenter Nick Grimshaw urged the public to show their support by rocking the official Bahia bands. These bands are a traditional, colourful Brazilian band worn on the wrist as a symbol of support, tied with three knots to represent three wishes.

"We're asking the public to get behind our fantastic team of athletes in every way they can including a visual show of support with a Bahia band," the music guru explained. "No matter how far away the athletes are we know the support means a lot to them; we want to show them we're in it with them and will be cheering them on from home."

"We want to ensure that the overwhelming support for Team GB is felt by our athletes and whilst naturally, distance is a challenge, we believe that with our fan club and our Great Britons at home, this can be overcome," added Bill Sweeney, CEO of the British Olympic Association. "Our Great Britons are part of Team GB's extended support team and we know that they represent a nation that is so proud of its athletes."
