Hello and welcome to The One Show
with Michael 'The Wizard' Ball.
And Alex Jones.
What are you doing?
I am having a
bit of fun whether Facebook built
up. I am supposed to be finding one
for our guest tonight. It is a beard
of balls. Can you say that?
Oh, what is this one?
That is cool.

of recent times. I have got it.

We'll also be talking
to Team Rickshaw,
who, it's fair to say,
have had a bit of a tough day!
They're on route to
Penrith in Cumbria.

We will catch up with them later on.
It's recently been reported that NHS
maternity units have been turning
to expensive temporary staffing
arrangements, to plug a nationwide
shortage of midwives.
Now The Royal College of Nursing
is calling for what SOME view
as an even more controversial
solution - men!

-- you see us. In that moment Polly
calls for the Virgin Mary. She
believes in that moment she sees her
daughter. Either she has had a
breakdown and cannot cope with the
reality or she has had a vision.
Either way, now she believes that
the soles of her children are with
her and so, now, like Tommy and
Arther, she's fearless because she
believes she has no fear of death.
And now nothing will stop them. All
you need to know is, are they going
to destroy each other all the enemy?
We have a very interesting enemy.

Tellers about her.
She was in Birmingham in 1926. At 31
she stood and she made 10,000 women
walk out of motor factory to ask for
equal pay for that she did it twice

came back to this country and stood
for tenants. Just an extraordinary
character. The Jessie Eden we have
is not exactly the same. Stephen
Knight talks about seeing these
characters at the corner of his eye

like he does to Churchill in this.

On last night's show,
Team Rickshaw brought sunshine
to Morecambe with their smiles.
Today, they've been
pedalling to Penrith.
A whopping 59 miles.
From what we've been hearing,
it's been a real uphill challenge.
How are the team holding up?
They have completed 327 miles. They
are enjoying the company of Penrith!
We are here. Oh, my word. On the
subject of Peaky Blinders, Team
Rickshaw has played a blinder. We
are going to rename the Lake

What do you make of it?
Cold, but the people are lovely. Can
we not go to somewhere warm? Don't
worry about it.
Ready? Yes! Despite
Sabra feeling mid-journey blues, we
have good wishes. Look at this.
Amazing. Thank you. A nice bit of
cake, Sabra. And I get a bottle of
whiskey! And as the sun rises, we
cannot help but enjoy the
spectacular views that surround us.
Breathe it in. It is a delight, this
coastline. You have the stretch of
the estuary and around the other
side, the pebbled coves. From
enjoying the Seaview to the
Hillview. It is Luke's task to get
us to the top. We have been joined
by cyclists. Just be careful. No

That kind of encouragement is what
the team needs for what we are now
about to face. The Kirk Stone Pass.

Because of that, he could not do any
training on the road. This new
experience, feeling the wind in his
face. He trained on an exercise bike
in the house. What has it been to
watch the television and see what he
has been doing?
It is surreal to see

has paid off, really proud.

When I was younger, I felt
just the same as anyone else my age.
I could run, dance and play and my
ambition was to become a journalist.
But, a few years ago, I began to
have problems with my balance.
Doctors discovered I had a really
rare neurodegenerative condition.
And having it sucks. Niemann-Pick
affects every area of my life. From
my walking, talking, thinking and
even my eating. There is currently
no cure for the condition, and I
know that without a cure-all, it
will get worse. During this tough
time, I have been helped by a
charity called Niemann-Pick UK. They
are supported by Children In Need.

rickshaw challenge. I want to have
adventures and do something like

is a message from Sadio Mane.

A great note to

Peaky Blinders begins tomorrow,
nine o'clock on BBC Two.
Tomorrow, Team Rickshaw crosses
the Scottish border,

We'll be joined in the studio
by Bear Grylls, Sara Pascoe,
with music from Jools Holland
and Jose Feliciano with his Rhythm
and Blues Orchestra.
