Sports Relief Celebrity Cyclists At Land's End

After a gruelling non-stop four-day stint through night and day on their bikes, the cyclists on the BT Sport Relief Million Pound Bike Ride - Fearne Cotton, Miranda Hart, Russell Howard, Patrick Kielty, Davina McCall, David Walliams and Jimmy Carr - have completed their fundraising journey from John O'Groats to Land’s End.

The exhausted but jubilant team reached the finish-line just before seven o'clock last night, having so far raised over a million pounds for Sport Relief. The team's efforts will help vulnerable people here in the UK, and in some of the world's poorest countries.

I nipped down to Land's End to give them a wave. Scores of people had turned out, and the celebs got a big cheer as they crossed the line, an endearingly home-made banner dangling limply over the road. Well done all, enjoy your brief stay in Cornwall.
