420,000 people took part in the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in 15 National Mile Events and in local Miles all over the UK. And adding to the fantastic weekend of entertainment was the 370 celebrities from the world of sport and entertainment who supported the event.
McFly provided musical backing with the Queen track 'Don't Stop Me Now' which entered the charts at number 1, and and who will forget the special, last ever episode of Footballers Wives featuring Graham Norton.
Meanwhile, Little Britain's David Walliams swam the Channel from England to France in just 10 ½ hours – one of the 50 fastest times ever – raising a phenomenal £1 million in the process!
The great British public certainly did go the extra mile, raising over £18 million.
