The challenge saw former Spice Girl and current solo artist Melanie Chisholm, Waterloo Road actress and Strictly Come Dancing runner up Chelsee Healey, Radio 1 DJ Greg James, Olympian Phillips Idowu and top comedians Dara O'Briain and Jack Dee battling the rapids and dodging the crocs and hippos as they canoed and white water rafted over 100kms down Africa’s mighty Zambezi River… all in the name of raising vital funds and awareness for Comic Relief!

The Hell and High Water challenge began on the 28th of January when the intrep team left the relative comfort and luxury of the UK and began their journey into deepest Africa. As organisers of the 'BT Red Nose Challenge: Hell and Highwater' we followed the team every step of the way they took on the challenge of a lifetime! The team's time on the Zambezi proved to be eventful to say the least!
