Christine is still the One we're proud to watch

Sport Relief, along with Comic Relief, has raised millions of pounds for worthy causes and needy people. So it was heartwarming to see our own Christine Bleakley defeat her inner fears and complete her record-breaking water-skiing challenge across 22 miles of the Channel to France. To date, her efforts have raised more than £300,000 for Sport Relief.

Her family and friends will justifiably be very proud of her, not only for her fundraising, but more importantly for her warm, homely personality complemented by her Ulster sense of fun and humor.

With so many so-called TV and radio 'stars' exuding shallow personalities and self-promotion, how refreshing to see this young celebrity genuinely interested in helping less fortunate people.

Well done Christine - you're the One Show we're all proud to watch.
