John Bishop exhausted after Sports Relief hell

John Bishop exhausted as Sport Relief ‘Week of Hell’ moves to water

John Bishop is battling exhaustion as he continues his Sport Relief ‘Week of Hell’ challenge.

The comedian kicked off his 290-mile journey from Paris to London yesterday. After suffering a fall within the first hour of his cycle from the French capital, Bishop completed the 185-mile ride at 3am this morning.

Despite only managing to sleep for an hour, he began stage two this morning; rowing across the English Channel to Dover. Joined by Davina McCall, Freddie Flintoff and Denise Lewis, Bishop struggled to remain coherent when speaking on BBC Radio 1.

The foursome crossed just five miles within the two hours, but after finding a solid rhythm, they have now passed the halfway point of their journey. They are expected to finish approximately three hours later than planned at 6.30pm.
