An actress best known for her role in Game of Thrones was among a few of the famous faces at the Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life at Hyde Park .

Laura Pradelska, who played Quaithe of the Shadow in the second series of smash hit HBO series, appeared on the start line of the Cancer Research UK charity fundraiser on Sunday (July 23).

She was joined by reality television star Stacey Solomon , who rose to fame by third in the sixth series of The X Factor , before winning "I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here" in 2010.

The stars were accompanied by friends and cheered on by Celebs Go Dating expert Nadia Essex as they made their way around the leafy 5k course in London’s Hyde Park.

Speaking after crossing the finishing line, Stacey, who has enjoyed a long-term relationship with former EastEnder and I’m a Celeb contestant Joe Swash, said: “The atmosphere at Race for Life today is so inspiring, it definitely made the 5k easier."

Emily Smith, head of Race for Life said “We’re thrilled that Stacey and Laura enjoyed being part of Race for Life at Hyde Park today.

"They join thousands of other incredible women taking on events across the UK this summer to raise money for life-saving research."

Stacey added: “It doesn’t matter if people are jogging, running or walking the route, just that they’re here, taking part to raise money for research to help beat cancer.

“For anyone who hasn’t signed up yet I’d say definitely give it a go – it’s a great way to get some exercise and raise money for Cancer Research UK’s ground-breaking work.”
