Holmes, 51, will ‘guide the well-being strategy’ as it bolsters its app, Transform, which offers fitness videos and motivational speeches. 

Personal Group listed on AIM over 20 years ago and has a market cap of £110million.

Holmes, who works as a motivational speaker, said: ‘My mental health took a drastic turn in 2003 and I suffered from depression, self-harm, anxiety and stress.

‘Being an elite sportsperson you are under pressure not to struggle, but everybody is a human. 

A lot of my talks focus on mental health and well-being at work. Corporates have a responsibility to support employees.’
