Former Blue Peter presenter Helen Skelton dropped in for another charity challenge when she abseiled down the BT Tower.

The star launched herself 148 metres down from the 31st floor of the central London landmark in aid of Sport Relief and the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund, along with adventurer Bear Grylls and swimmer Mark Foster.

Meanwhile, David Beckham has described how he struggled to sleep the night before filming an Only Fools And Horses special for Sport Relief.

The retired England football captain, 38, admitted he was surprised to have been given so much dialogue in the BBC1 Sport Relief special.

“The day of filming started off with a slightly sleepless night, going over my script,” Beckham told Radio Times magazine.

“The thought of being on set with Nicholas and David was obviously very nerve-racking. I woke up that morning with my script on my chest.

“I’ve never done anything like this before, especially with two people I’m really in awe of and have been for many years.

“It wasn’t just about learning the script, it was about delivering it; saying the right things at the right time.”
