The 32-year-old is rowing for eight hours a day for five days so will be stopping throughout the country on his way.

Staff at Whilton Locks said the DJ and his team were suitably fed and watered before getting happily back on their way.

According to the garden centre, Jordan had lasagne and "liked it so much found the ladies in the kitchen to tell them himself".

The challenge runs all week and will be featured on the Comic Relief night with a separate full TV documentary, too.

Money raised from Jordan's challenge will go to life-changing projects supported by Comic Relief, which help people to live free from poverty, violence and discrimination.
