Chris Evans was part of a 'crack' team of celebrities who went to India to play cricket and see how your Sport Relief money is being spent.

Their at times hilarious and often heartbreaking experiences have been broadcast on BBC One in two very special documentaries.

Chris Evans gave us his verdict on his team-mates and let's us know which of the celebs caught the eye. And which did not...

Who was the most vocal player?

The loudest player on the field was probably Patrick Kielty, Nick Hancock or myself.

I would plump for Nick Hancock because his passion overtook his sense for the whole tour - he was very excited about it. This was his Jim'll fix it moment.

Who was the best player?

Harry Judd - the boy's a bit special...

The best player on tour from the celebs was without doubt Harry Judd from McFly. He was an awesome batsman, he could bowl really quickly and he kept wicket like one of the best goalies you have ever seen.

He was amazing, an amazing, amazing cricketer and apparently he could have played for England school boys.

Who was the worst player?

The worst player on tour sportsmanship wise was definitely Mark Chapman, although he was actually quite a good cricketer.

The actual worst cricketer was Jake Humphreys, he was just terrible. I think he may have tied with Dermot O'Leary who can't bowl, he actually throws the ball.

Most embarrassing moment?

The most embarrassing moment for me was when I ran Paddy Kielty out at the Brabourne stadium, because it was just rubbish.

Paddy had only been in for one ball and this was his big moment.

I was so embarrassed that I had got him out that I tried to say that it was his fault. I forgot I had a microphone on - it was totally my fault.

Most touching moment

I think the most touching moment of the tour for me was when Patrick Kielty gave a speech about this guy called Mr Rose who has dedicated his whole life to looking after children.

Because he was an orphan he decided to repay the Mum and Dad who took him in and God by dedicating the rest of his life to looking after kids.

Patrick just gave this brilliant ad-libbed speech and it was so moving. When Mr Rose looks at you his eyes just tell a whole story - he is a very special person.

Why you should do a Sport Relief mile

I have seen Sport Relief money at work it makes a massive difference.

Now it is your turn to take action, by being sponsored for a Sport Relief Mile.

Just think of the difference you will be making - the weight you will be losing and the blisters that you will be gaining.

Please do it - it's worth it.
