The BT Red Nose Climb[edit]

The BT Red Nose Climb saw nine celebrities successfully scale 19,330 feet (5,890 m) to reach the summit of Africa's highest mountain to raise money for Comic Relief. On 27 February 2009, Gary Barlow, Ronan Keating, Chris Moyles, Ben Shephard, Cheryl Cole, Kimberley Walsh, Denise Van Outen, Fearne Cotton, and Alesha Dixon set off to Tanzania to tackle Mount Kilimanjaro with project manager and guide Jeremy Gane of Charity Challenge. The Climb has already raised in excess of £3.5 million with over £1.8 million coming from the audience of BBC Radio 1 (a record for the station.) All nine celebrities reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro on Saturday, 7 March 2009.[2] Cheryl Cole, Fearne Cotton, Denise Van Outen and Ben Shephard reached the summit first at sunrise. On Thursday 12 March 2009 BBC One's 'Kilimanjaro: The Big Red Nose Climb' was seen by 8.74m viewers (36.6% share). British Prime Minister Gordon Brown met with the group upon their return to the United Kingdom and congratulated the "nine heroes" on their achievement, saying that they were "inspiring a generation of kids who would never have thought about these things".[3]
