Sport Relief got together 13 celebrities, put them in 90-degree heat and asked them to take on India at cricket.

The hilarious and often heartbreaking story of the tour 'Sport Relief Goes All Out For India' was broadcast in two very special documentaries on BBC One.

Former England spinner Phil Tufnell skippered the Sport Relief Red Socks on their three match tour.

And England captain Freddie Flintoff even took time out to give the team a few pointers!

Chris Evans, Nick Hancock and Dermot O'Leary were among those on hand to see how your money is changing lives.

The two programmes followed the fortunes of a group of famous faces as they pick up the cricketing gauntlet.

The first match saw the Red Socks travel to meet some of the survivors of the tsunami who are rebuilding their lives thanks to Sport Relief money.

For the second match of the tour, in the city of Chennai, the opposition was made up of youngsters who have been given the chance to escape the back-breaking and dangerous work they are forced to do to survive.

The trip culminated in a nerve wracking show-down against a Bollywood XI in Mumbai - which was screened live on Indian TV!
