The Strictly Come Dancing presenters raised more than £1M by dancing non-stop for 24 hours and five minutes.
They ended their marathon challenge with a weary performance of Destiny’s Child’s Survivor, before collapsing to the floor.
“I never want to dance again,” said Claudia afterwards. “I don’t like movement.”
Then in 2019 Rylan Clark completed The Great Ka-RY-oke Challenge saw him sing karaoke for 24 hours non-stop.
