Anita Rani spoke exclusively to Hello!
Strictly star Anita Rani has revealed that climbing Kilimanjaro had led her to spend the second day balling her eyes out "like a small child" after suffering from severe altitude sickness that led her to feeling like she "was losing my mind". In the exclusive video, the 41-year-old, who experienced extreme nausea due to rapid exposure to low amounts of oxygen at a high elevation, assured fans that she is now feeling much better.
The presenter explained: "It's all for Comic Relief, it's all for a good cause, so I will put myself through whatever it takes to get to the top of this mountain, and I am glad I am still here." The Countryfile presenter has joined Shirley Ballas, Alexander Armstrong, Dani Dyer, Dan Walker, Osi Umenyiora, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock in the Comic Relief challenge. The hour-long BBC documentary will follow the stars on their expedition exactly 10 years after Gary Barlow, Cheryl, Fearne Cotton and Chris Moyles ascended the mountain for charity.
