Christine Bleakley completes English Channel crossing


The One Show presenter Christine Bleakley has completed her water-ski challenge across the English Channel in one hour and 40 minutes.

The star had aimed to finish the Sport Relief task in just over an hour. She raised thousands of pounds by crossing the 21-mile busy shipping lane to France.

After completing her challenge, Bleakley told Ken Bruce on BBC Radio 2 that it was the toughest thing she had ever done.
