Drivetime presenter Greg James is to take part in this year’s Comic Relief challenge – following in the footsteps of fellow DJs Scott Mills, Fearne Cotton, and Chris Moyles – who participated in past fundraisers for the charity.
Writing on his Radio 1 blog Greg said that the challenge was being kept underwraps but revealed it would take place in Africa. He said:
“I can’t reveal the exact details just yet but I’ve been specially allowed to tell my dear Radio 1 listeners a few details.
I’ll be in a team of celebrities undertaking a very dangerous and physically gruelling adventure to raise £1 million for Comic Relief. Simple as that!”
He added: “The honour has fallen on my shoulders to represent Radio 1 and you lot for Comic Relief – I won’t let you down and I promise to raise a shed load of money.”
