A DENBIGHSHIRE entrepreneur has unveiled new I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here leg cover after winning a national award.

The founder of Denbigh-based Limb-art has unveiled a world first – an I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here prosthetic leg cover.

Former Paralympic swimmer and medallist Mark Williams, who lost his leg in a cycling accident at the age of 10, has designed the eye-catching leg cover.

It depicts the famous Gwrych Castle and contestants from this year’s show.

Mark, from Rhyl, said: “As the hit show is being filmed right on our doorstep we wanted to show our support by making the world’s only I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here prosthetic leg cover.

“I set up Limb-art, which designs and manufactures prosthetic leg covers, to help other people who have lost a leg.

“As well as giving prosthetic legs a better shape, our eye-catching leg covers allow the wearer to express their personality and gives them confidence.

"They are also a great talking point. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve been stopped in the street and been told my leg looks amazing.”

Limb-art has won numerous awards for its ‘cool’ prosthetic leg covers. Last month Mark was named as ‘Entrepreneur for good’ winner at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards.

In partnership with Starling Bank, the ceremony was held at Grosvenor House in London and saw 159 entrepreneurs across the UK recognised for their entrepreneurial stories and achievements over the last year.

About the award, Mark said: “I am truly amazed by this recognition and award.

"What started out not as a business, but as a solution to my own body image issue, has now grown into Limb-art.

“Today we supply across the UK through the NHS and to the rest of the world through several distributors as far afield as Queensland.

"I’m so proud that our work helps to give confidence to amputees all around the world.”

The Great British Entrepreneur Awards launched in 2012 to celebrate the best of British enterprise.

This year, after having to hold the awards virtually in 2020, the organisers brought together all eight of their regional shortlists for the first time, with a guest list of 1,200 entrepreneurs, judges, mentors, investors and partners invited to the London celebration.

Francesca James, founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, said: “It was fantastic to hear so many inspiring business stories after a difficult few years, and even better to have been able to invite all of our finalists to the in-person ceremony and celebrate together.

“With more than 1,200 attending, the evening was a real snapshot of the UK economy. The winners were thoroughly deserving, overcoming some stiff competition from their fellow finalists.”
