The BBC’s hosts have started an epic team run across the Lake District to raise money for Comic Relief.
wain Wyn Evans and Angellica Bell captained the teams participating in the four-day Red Nose and Spoon challenge.
Teams must balance a red nose on a spoon as they traverse mountainous terrain, aiming to raise as much money as possible for the charity event.
Penalties are accrued by teams each time a nose is dropped.
Former CBBC presenter Bell leads the Gold team, alongside Sean from Glasgow and Cherrell from London.
Weather presenter Wyn Evans leads the green team and joins Sally from the Scottish border and Oliver from Eastbourne.
The first day saw some playful vandalism from the yellows and Wyn Evans forgot his hiking boots for the hiking challenge.
He was forced to begin his first 11-mile trek up steep, slippery slopes in his handleless sled.
The blues later discovered rocks planted by the gold team in their backpacks, promising a “payback”.
Members of the public joining BBC presenters have all been supported by Comic Relief in the past and are joining to contribute to charity.
Oliver, who is severely deaf, says he has faced challenges “from the moment I wake up to the time I go to sleep”.
Speaking to Wyn Evans, he said the hardest part of his condition is often the “isolation” that results in not being able to hear the conversations going on around him, but thanks to the Elizabeth Foundation , a charity that helps deaf children for which he is fundraising. challenges.
The red spoon and red nose race will be watched on BBC’s The One Show during Friday’s Comic Relief lead.
Donations to charity can be made by phone or online.
