Alfie kicked off 2022 filming BBC One’s new show ‘Freeze The Fear with Wim Hof’ the show followed Alfie along with 7 other celebrities as they give up their warm cozy lives to live in the Italian mountains in sub-zero conditions, facing a series of daunting cold challenges designed to push their minds and bodies to the limit all under the watchful eye of the global sensation Wim Hof AKA ‘The Ice Man’ who believes that embracing the cold can change their lives for the better.
