Greg reveals his Comic Relief Hell and High Water Challenge!!!

Today, Greg announced all the details for this year’s ‘Red Nose Hell & High Water Challenge’ for Comic Relief
He will spend five gruelling days canoeing and white water rafting down Africa’s mighty Zambezi river to raise as much cash as possible for Red Nose Day.
Greg will be joined by a team of 5 other celebrities; Spice Girl Melanie C, Waterloo Road actress and Strictly Come Dancing runner up Chelsee Healey, Olympian Phillips Idowu and top comedians Dara O’Briain and Jack Dee
As they travel a total of 111km down the Zambezi they’ll encounter some of the world’s most dangerous creatures, like crocodiles, lethal snakes the most deadly – hippos! By night they’ll be camping on treacherous cliff tops and mosquito inhabited riverbanks.
The team are putting themselves through hell and high water in the hope of raising £1 million to help children in Zambia go to school. This could pay for life-changing education for thousands of vulnerable girls and provide an escape from poverty, child marriage and pregnancy. Any extra money raised will help those living unimaginably tough lives across the UK and the rest of Africa.
