BBC Radio 1 DJ Jordan North, recently rowed 100 miles from London to his hometown of Burnley to raise money for Red Nose Day.

The five-day challenge saw North face harsh weather, constant pain, and even territorial swans. 

But it has now been made into a half-hour documentary that is set to air on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer on Tuesday, March 15.

The special show will show how North battled the week that nearly broke him and how his effort saw a massive £700,000 raised for Red Nose Day.

The documentary sees Jordan row on average for eight hours a day, covering over 100 miles in total – the equivalent of 1,552 laps of his beloved Turf Moor

Speaking off his challenge, Jordan said: "When Comic Relief called me to ask if I’d be up for a rowing challenge to raise money for Red Nose Day, I honestly said (and believed) ‘how hard can rowing be?’. It was honestly the hardest week of my life."

He added "I received so much support from BBC Radio 1 listeners, the team who were with me and the amazing people I saw along the canals. It was amazing and really helped me to keep my chin up."

All the money raised for Red Nose Day helps people in the UK and around the world live free from poverty, violence and discrimination, and support people with their mental health

Viewers can watch the full story of Jordan’s valiant effort in Rowing Home with Jordan North, a special documentary for Red Nose Day which will air on Tuesday 15th March on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer at 8.30pm.
