I really enjoyed doing all of my challenges but there where some more than others!
I loved the red arrows it was such a unique opportunity, but to be honest my favourite was the coin dominoes. I think it was great TV.
I hated the rugby, only because I missed. I was raging.
It was great to do something that involved so many of you. It was a real boost for me to find out so many of you are doing things for comic relief.
So thanks again for all your help guys, wouldnt have been the same without you!!!

I have never known such a cold, wet and wild day as when we hung the bunting in Hull.
I can't thank the Guides, the construction crew, students and Hull Uni enough! It was a team effort and I can't thank everyone enough, I am proud to say we did it! We set a new world record!
Watch my challenge here!

Helen has just completed her third magnificent challenge for Comic Relief - to fly a jet with the Red Arrows!
But don't worry - you don't need your own jet plane or a team of experts to train you in order to raise money for Comic Relief; there are so many different things you and your mates can do to get involved.
You could organise a car wash at your school or maybe try a puzzle marathon with all your friends.
Watch this video for some inspiration and visit Helen's Red Nose Day page for info on how to send your fund raising cash to Comic Relief.

I still can't believe I flew a red arrow jet!
I am so lucky. I know it's a once in a lifetime opportunity, so I am one lucky lady.
That said, it wasn't the easiest thing I have ever done, it's so fast and so high my stomach was in knots. I threw up!
The team were such gents, they just dealt with it. It didn't spoil the experience though. Apart from those few messy seconds, I was in my element!
I am in awe of that team, their nerve, their skill and their expertise!

"This year for Comic Relief I have 7 challenges and shock, horror… I failed the first one!
I had to kick a conversion in front of over 80,000 rugby fans and, although I was gutted my kick went wide. I was happy that I got it high enough and long enough. It looked decent enough, but just missed!
Keep checking my diary for the latest news on my second challenge and don’t miss next week’s show to see how I get on."

You can kick like Helen with our exclusive 'how to' video starring rugby ace Charlie Hodgson!

Helen’s already started training for this one, so we can let you know what’s in store!
Have you ever seen a rugby player kick a conversion during a match? It’s when they kick the ball through the H-shaped goal at the end of the pitch. Well, Helen has accepted the challenge to kick a conversion during the half time break in the upcoming 6 Nations England v Scotland match at Twickenham!
Helen’s very nervous, because she's never kicked a rugby ball in her life. Luckily, rugby pro Charlie Hodgson will be on hand with some tips on how to beat her nerves in front of nearly 83,000 people!
Don't miss next weeks show to see how she gets on.
