Where you can watch brand new Rob Burrow documentary

Last night another amazing Rob Burrow documentary aired for the first time.

You can now catch up on the new ITV Tonight documentary on the ITVX player as it follows Rob Burrow’s wife Lindsey as she prepares to take part in the Leeds marathon named in honour of her husband.

Since his diagnosis in 2019, rugby league legend Rob Burrow has been battling Motor Neurone Disease, with wife Lindsey by his side.

The show sees her juggle marathon training with working and family life. We take an intimate look at Lindsey’s new day-to-day routine as she balances running with being a mum of three, caring for Rob and working part-time as an NHS physiotherapist.

The film also explores the wider impact of this debilitating and terminal disease, on both the patients themselves and their families. Rob is one of an estimated 5,000 adults in the UK currently living with MND and every day, an average of six people are diagnosed with the condition. We still don’t know what causes Motor Neurone Disease, but in 2021 the Government pledged 50 million pounds towards MND research.

Finally we see Lindsey on the big day itself as she takes on the inaugural Rob Burrow Marathon, with her proud family watching on. So far, Lindsey has raised over £102,000 towards a new MND centre in Leeds, which will help families affected by the disease for years to come.
