Radio 1 presenter Jordan North has begun rowing 100 miles in support of Comic Relief.
The DJ, who also appeared on the twentieth season of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here, will be rowing on canals between London and Burnley.
North commented on the challenge on Instagram: "It's the hardest I've ever trained for anything. I'm under no illusions that it is probably going to be one of the most physical and gruelling things I've ever done."
He added: “It took me seven attempts to pass my driving test so you can imagine how I’m feeling about navigating 100 miles of the canals to get to Burnley over five days solo! There have been times where I’ve thought that I won’t be able to do this and have felt quite overwhelmed. I know it will be so hard."
North plans to start rowing every day at 8:15 during the Radio 1 Breakfast Show hosted by Greg James until he gets to the canalside location of his afternoon show which he shares with Vick Hope.
He is expected to row for eight hours a day for a week to complete the challenge.
To train for the pursuit, North has been working with a professional rowing trainer for the last six weeks.
James' 4 March edition of the Breakfast Show will be broadcasting from Burnley to meet North at the finishing line. He won't be doing the route all in one but several different legs across the week.
James himself raised over £1m in 2018 for Sport Relief after climbing five of the tallest mountains in the UK.
This year, Red Nose Day will be taking place on 18 March. Olympic diver Tom Daley is also participating in a challenge for the charity. He rowed, cycled, swam and ran from Stratford to his home town of Plymouth across four days for the charity which aims to help communities in poverty.
