Helen dons sportswear for challenge

She's known for her adventurous challenges in aid of charity and this time is no different.

Helen Skelton abseiled down the BT Tower to raise money for Sport Relief and the Royal Marines Charitable Fund on Monday.

Donning her weather-appropriate sportswear, including sports socks, she was joined by a number of familiar famous faces, including fellow TV star and adrenaline junkie, Bear Grylls.

The team abseiled 148-metres down the BT Tower as part of Sport Relief's fundraising activities taking place throughout March.

Helen has previously kayaked the entire length of the River Amazon in 2010 and became the first person to reach the South Pole using a bicycle in 2012 in the name of Sport Relief. She also walked across a 150-metre tightrope at Battersea Power Station for Comic Relief in 2011.

She was also the second woman ever to complete the 78-mile Namibian ultra marathon before just weeks later completing the London Marathon in 2009.
