Underground stars Chris and Karl King popped in on Jonathan Miles
They're at it again. Those intrepid King brothers from Sunderland, Chris and Karl, have put imagination and effort together and have come up with another wacky jaunt for Children in Need. And this year they are joined by their friend Heather Mawdsley.
They plan to visit every one of the 60 Tyne and Wear Metro stations and then travel down to London and visit each and every one of the 270 London tube stations.
they hopped on and off 47 buses and two tube trains visiting 10 cities around England in five days.
This year's fund raising challenge starts on Wednesday 17 November on the Tyne and Wear Metro catching the 06.01 from South Hylton.
They then travel to London and stay overnight, rising early ready for the 06.22 first tube out of Chesham.
Their London escapade has a little added spice to it - they plan to break the world record of 16 hours and 44 minutes - let's hope they are all running on time.
"We'll arrive at Heathrow [tube station] shortly after 11pm," says Chris, "stay overnight, get back home to Newcastle and then we've been invited along to Cockermouth for the live show." Hopefully that will be with several hundred pounds under the belt!
Their only outlay for the trip will be the £16.20 each for the London tube day fair, as the Tyne and Wear Metro has said they can travel free.
