The 38-year-old chose to raise money for LAMP, a charity that supports young, vulnerable and disadvantaged people between the ages of 16 and 25 who find themselves, through no fault of their own in a homeless situation.

Sarah said: “It is a charity that is close to my heart, LAMP helps young people that are homeless. There are not enough organisations out there that help people when they fall on hard times.

“LAMP is such a worthwhile charity, they support a lot of young people and I think what they do is amazing.”

She took on 10 obstacles during the challenge, they were cheered on by the show’s presenters and it was aired on GMTV on Thursday morning.

Sarah added: “The challenge was amazing, I faced a lot of my fears throughout and I conquered a lot of those fears.

“My biggest fear has always been heights and I thought I would struggle with some of the obstacles but I completed them all.

“One of the worst ones was the zip wire, you got to the top and then you had to run and jump and grab onto the zip wire, it was really scary but I managed to do it.

“I enjoyed doing the challenge with people I did not know because I got to meet new people.

“We had such a laugh from the start to finish and everyone was really supportive, we really pushed each other all the way.

“I would definitely do it again next year, everyone thought I was mad to do it, but I am glad I did.
