Hello and welcome to The One Show
with Angellica Bell.
It's Friday and it's been
the mother of all weeks.
To Loch Ness and any monsters who
live in her, let's go.
You have snow, you are
disappearing in the holes.
My God. Are you kidding?
Four down, one to go.
the Mother of All Challenges,
a gruelling week of swimming,
climbing, cycling, caving
and running is coming to an end.
Alex, Debbie, Leigh and Jodi took
on the rough terrain
of the Welsh coastline -
running a marathon
distance in relay.
We'll be hearing from Alex live
in Swansea and seeing the moment
they finally cross the finish line -
we'll also remind you how
you can support them
by donating to Sport Relief.
It's not too late.
But here in the studio we're joined
by an actor who has become hotter
than an exploding Death Star,
after leaving the Dark Side
to become a Star Wars hero.
We're just as delighted to have him
back - it's John Boyega!
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Thanks for having me.
Lovely to have
An exciting time for you,
been all right.
It has been
A new film Pacific Rim
Uprising comes out, you have been
yizy with that, you had a special
screening your family went to see.
The family was there, friends, we
had a nice special screening to show
London what the finished product is.
What is that like? I can only
imagine for a young actor, like
yourself, to be able to take your
parents, to red carpet events, and
screenings of your film, you know
which you are producing this time.
It must be so satisfy, how does it
It is greatment, that is
lovely. I love seeing their face,
but it is nice to take them along,
it is a job that requires do you
travel a lot. So when you have the
chance to bring your family, bring
them. Them even seeing you on a
day-to-day basis is limited so it
was special.? Are you a daddy's boy
or mummy's boy? Mummy's boy but my
dad is my boy, you know what I mean?
We will be talking about the film
later, so thank you for being with
Alex and the mums have taken on so
much and we are struggling to keep
up. Eyesterday we saw them caving in
the Brecon Beacons, not Snowdonia as
we might have said. Sorry Wales.
Today they are running 28.4 miles in
relay from Rhossili to Swansea, and
it will take team work to get there.
Here is how they got on.
Our team of mums have had a week of
hard challenges. Experiencing highs.
And on this last day, we are
planning to run 26.2 miles in relay,
up to Castle Square in Swansea.

But this is not just a simple run
through a city. We will be pushing
our way up the coastline of South
Wales, across country on uneven and
muddy track, it is going to be a
real strain for all of us.
It is incredibly undulating. It is
difficult under foot. So there is
lots of challenge still to come for

off on this megarun the baton is
passed on to Amal who takes on the
first solo leg.
It is beautiful.

I was actually thinking about a lady
that I met in Kenya and what she has

miscarriage and later the joy of
having twiners she has shown herself

I think I
came in strong or thinking I was a
strong person. And I also didn't
realise how much I need a team round
Being part of a team really gives
you the motivation mentally and
physically to achieve more than you
probably even imagine.
Mum is going to do good. As long as
she doesn't run too fast I think she
can do this. Mum, you can do this.

unlike anybody's I have experienced.

have done all of the challenges this
week, you have done really good.
She is one of the best people I have
met. So determined, and this team
wouldn't be the success it is if it
wasn't for her.
I love her.
The lowest point that was definitely
the cycling. I can't... I have
discovered I am tougher than I
thought I was.
This bird is unstoppable!
Jodie has suffered with postnatal
depression and hopes to help other
mums by sharing her experience.

strong meant you never broke down,
you were nerve weak, and this has
completely shown me that actually
what makes you strong, is when you
break, you get back up. And you
allow other people to lift you up.
Me and the boys will be there for
you at the end, cheering you on.
so proud of you mummy, I've really
hope you enjoy it and love you lots.
I am slipping and sliding, I can
barely breathe because I am holding
my breath to keep my balance. It is
the final push, the final push and I
want to do 100%.
Being the team Captain has been a
real privilege, Leigh approaches
every challenge with gusto, she is
kind of the female bear grill, Jodie
out of everybody, she wears her
heart on her sleeve. She has learned
to this week. For Amal this is a
celebration of working towards being
fit enough to complete these
challenge, and you can just see that
radiating from her.
Debs, so kind, and all she has done
is look after the rest of us. And I
just hope that the four women know
how incredible I think they are,
they are really focussed and that is
why they have achieved what they set
out to achieve.
An amazing effort once again from
the mum, here they are to let you
know how you can make a donation to
Sport Relief and make their efforts
worthwhile. To donate £5 text the

charge. All of your donation will go
to Sport Relief.
Now, did they make it over the
finish line? That is the question,
after 28.44 long miles this was the
scene in Castle Square in Swansea
earlier. And look at them go. Over
the mini round about. That is their
relatives, past the castle.
And as you said, 28.4 miles was the
total but they each did seven miles
each. That is a gruelling week, that
would have been so difficult. They
did the first five miles together.
The last five miles together and
there they are. Over the finishing
line together. Alex in charge there.
Debbie, Leigh, almam, Jodie, finally
seeing their relative, swimming,
biking, caving, running the lot.
You can see the relief there from
the faces. They have been challenged
in different ways as well. None
would describe themselves as sports
people. That is safe to say.
Happy to have mum home.
We will hand
back to you and speak to you later
when we have caught our breath and
when I have had a hug with my Little
Ted, where is he?
Well done. An amazing effort. We
will link up with Alex and the team
live in Swansea soon.
John you were

Is that a
mark of professionalism. People look
how hard they are working before
they get to the stage, to the set?
Yes, that shows a discipline but on
top of that is endurance, in scenes

training is similar as well.

The striking thing about this quarry
is how many children there are. The
job is exhausting and the monotony
is incredible. Many are single
mothers who have escaped difficult
and dramatic home lives and these
mothers don't have a choice. The
work here is gruelling and
dangerous, there are bits of rock
everywhere, it is very dusty and
noisy. I cannot imagine any mother
would want to bring their culture,
let alone work here. Rose has four
children, Vivian, Karen, Lucy and
Edward. They work in the quarry six
days a week as Rose cannot afford to
send them to school. Hello. Lovely
to meet you.

What I want for those as I
want crickets to have the education
any child deserves so they can make
a future and help their own mother.
Being trapped in poverty can feel
hopeless for families such as
Rose's. This is why the childhood
project funded by Sport Relief helps
vulnerable families who work at the
quarry. The children are so
traumatised and the project offers
support, counselling and eventually
gets them back into education and
the mothers are offered the chance
to start their own business. The
project is so important because it
helps secure a safe and better
future. It enables children to
become ready to attend a government
school like this one.

a mother like Vivian.
That is pulled

poverty like this is different to
poverty in the UK. It is

An update to that story.
We're delighted to say that Rose
and her children have enrolled
into the project you just saw.
The girls will start
at the school on Monday.
Then work will begin with Rose
to help her set up her own business.
Now, we saw them cross the finish
line a few minutes ago and it's time
to go live to Alex and the Mother
of all Challenges team in Swansea.
Congratulations! How is everyone
Thank you so much, Matt and
Angelica, we are exhausted but we
are so exhilarated! Right? We have
had a chance to catch up with our
families and have a shower. You will
be pleased to know. Colin, we have
run the marathon today. You have
been in charge of twins, to be fair.
How has that been while Leigh has
been away with us?
It has been tough
but I managed OK.

you. I feel like I practically know
you. And you have matched -- Mr
mother quite a lot? I have and I am
glad to have her back. I am sure,
she is fantastic. We, this challenge
was about doing something for
yourself and you have got the twins
and Ross, who is 20. How do you hope
other women have been inspired by
what they have seen all of you
fantastic powerhouses this week?
cannot believe we have smashed the
marathon, the Mother of all
Challenges, and if somebody average
can smash the marathon, imagine what
other mothers can do and I hope this
inspires people to think, I can do
that and I will try that because you
can be amazed about what you can
Just try something. Nothing
average about you! Overhear... Then,
I feel like I know you. Honestly!
Jodi has changed dramatically this
week. She has got softer and softer
as the days have gone on in such a
good way. We knew that physically
she was amazing. What changes have
you seen in this lovely lady as the
week has been going on?
that I know is that soft person. She
has that soft element but she is
also very strong and determined, she
has to be like narrow craft or

strong and powerful. -- Lara Croft.
