ANDY Burnham revealed his competitive streak ahead of a charity race this weekend.
The Leigh MP is running the Wigan 10k on Sunday to raise money for Joining Jack but neighbouring Wigan MP Lisa Nandy is determined to beat him.
He said: “I’m feeling worried, especially since I know how seriously Lisa’s taking it.
“I think there’s a healthy rivalry between Wigan and Leigh but the most important thing about the race is drumming up support for an important cause.
“I’ve got the hopes of the people of Leigh on my shoulders so I hope I don’t let them down.”
