This news comes just days after "The One Show" confirmed its Rickshaw Challenge will return this year with presenter Matt Baker joining forces with a team of six youngsters, all supported by BBC Children in Need-funded projects, to take on a gruelling 423-mile route from Calais to Salford over eight days.

He said: "This is the eighth year that we'll be heading out on the roads with the Rickshaw Challenge and I can't wait to get back in the saddle alongside six truly inspirational young people.

"Every year the support that we get never ceases to amaze me, it's fantastic to see how people from all across the UK get behind the challenge and I'm looking forward to seeing all those friendly faces willing us on again this year, and helping us to raise so much money for a charity which is incredibly close to my heart."

The Tour de Rickshaw will begin in France on November 9 and conclude on November 16 in Salford during "BBC Children in Need".
