The red team have emerged victorious as the winners of the first series of Don’t Rock The Boat.
After a challenging and dramatic five episodes, the reality show has drawn to a close, as the two teams of six celebrities pushed their skills to the test as they battled it out to complete over 500 gruelling miles across the sea, rowing the entire length of Britain.
Ultimately, the red group – which comprised of Adam Thomas, Craig Charles, Tom Watson, Fleur East, Victoria Pendleton and Jodie Kidd – won the race, finishing their journey in one hour and four minutes.
As the news was revealed, Adam said: ‘It feels amazing, it really does man. I’m so happy!’
The Don’t Rock The Boat golden oar was then handed to Fleur, as she dedicated the big win to her late father, who died earlier this year.
‘This is honestly so incredible,’ she began. ‘This year has been the lowest year of my life.
‘How I was rowing for my dad, and every stoke was for him, honestly it wasn’t even about this race, it was for him, and it means so much to me, so thank you.’
Host Freddie Flintoff then said: ‘We’ve all just watched you get stronger and stronger and better and better, and your dad would be so so proud, you’re an absolute superstar Fleur, enjoy it, congratulations.’
The red crew then revelled in their huge success, as they opened a bottle of champagne, letting the drink spray amongst them.
Meanwhile, the blue team – Jack Finchman, Joe Weller, Shaun Wallace, Lucy Fallon, Denise Lewis and Kimberley Wyatt – came as runners-up, with each member of the crew receiving a medal to commemorate their efforts.
‘I’ve proven to myself that I really can take on anything,’ Joe said. ‘I think we all can.’
Lucy agreed: ‘It’s the hardest thing that I’ve ever put not only my body through, but my mind through.’
Jack added: ‘I will never forget this. It’s once-in-a-lifetime.’
Don’t Rock The Boat is available to stream on ITV Hub.
