ACTOR and comedian Jessica Knappett has chosen to support a Borders charity during her appearance on a TV quiz show.

Knappet, who wrote and starred in the Channel 4 comedy series Drifters, made an appearance on Taskmaster, and starred in the BBC comedy Avoidance alongside Romesh Ranganathan, has chosen Endo SOS as her chosen charity when she takes on Celebrity Mastermind later this month.

Endo SOS is a charity dedicated to raising awareness of endometriosis, as well as offering support to this with the condition in the Borders and across the South of Scotland region.

Tao McReady, founder of Endo SOS said: "Endometriosis affects one out of every ten individuals assigned female at birth, and can have a devastating and long-lasting impact on their lives.

"Endo SOS has been raising awareness and providing support to those affected in the South of Scotland for five years, and we recently received charitable status (June 2023) to further our efforts, along with funding from the Scottish Government to help support those effected in the South of Scotland."

She added: "We are excited about this opportunity to raise awareness about endometriosis and its impact on sufferers.

"It is a common condition that deserves more attention.

"We look forward to cheering on Jessica Knappett and seeing them in in action."

Knappet was announced as an Endo SOS ambassador in November, and despite not having endometriosis herself, she hopes to raise awareness of the condition which affects some of her friends.

Jessica Knappet will appear on Celebrity Mastermind, on BBC One on Friday, January 26 at 7.30pm.

For more information on the work done by Endo SOS, visit the charity's website, or follow them on Instagram and Facebook - they also have a Facebook support group for those diagnosed with or have suspicions that they have endometriosis, and another group for family, carers and advocates of those with diagnosed or suspected endometriosis.
