This Friday, 23rd March, BBC viewers will be treated to the sight of celebs battling it out on the waters of Salford Quays in the Clash of the Channels Boat Race for Sport Relief.

Representing the BBC in the 1,200metre race are Radio 2 DJ Sara Cox, BBC Breakfast's Dan Walker, Top Gear's Rory Reid, newsreader Sophie Raworth, Countryfile's Ellie Harrison and Radio 1 DJ Dev Griffin.

In the ITV boat are Good Morning Britain presenter Charlotte Hawkins, TOWIE star and presenter Ferne McCann, Coronation Street's Nicola Thorp, Emmerdale's Chris Bisson, Benidorm's Jake Canuso and Love Island star Chris Hughes.

Double Olympic gold-medallist James Cracknell is team captain for the BBC, and two-time Olympic champion Helen Glover takes the helm for ITV. Giving top advice to both teams are five time Olympic Gold medallist Steve Redgrave and expert coxswains, Olympic Gold Medallist Garry Herbert and Olympic Silver Medallist Zoe de Toledo.

"Training for such a synchronised team sport like rowing is going to be a huge challenge for all of them" says Steve Redgrave "They'll need explosive energy, stamina and a great sense of timing, so anything could happen.

"Both teams have got world-class captains to lead them to the finish line" he adds "It's going to be a fantastic effort with some good old-fashioned rivalry thrown in. I can't wait to see who wins."

The event is part of a week of activity for this year's Sport Relief, starting tonight and running until next Friday. The Boat Race will be aired as part of the BBC One coverage on Friday night, 23rd March.

The money raised from Sport Relief goes towards helping vulnerable people, across the UK and the world.
