The first day saw some playful sabotage from the yellows and Wyn Evans forget his walking boots for the hiking challenge.
He was forced to begin the first 11-mile trek up steep and slippery slopes in his gripless trainers.
The blues later discovered rocks planted in their backpacks by the yellow team, promising there would be “payback”.

The members of the public joining the BBC presenters have all been supported by Comic Relief previously and are taking part to help give back to the charity.
