Jordan made it home

Over 5 exhausting days, Jordan took on his toughest challenge yet. Rowing home... for 8 hours a day, alone, along the nation’s canals.

Jordan, who was brand new to rowing, started his daunting journey from London and attempted to navigate 100 miles of demanding canals, backwards in a rowing scull, heading north to his hometown of Burnley.

It was wet, it was cold, and it was extremely hard work, pushing Jordan well out of his comfort zone and to his absolute physical and mental limits.

Catch all the action from Jordan’s relentless rowing challenge in an exclusive Comic Relief 30-minute special – Rowing Home with Jordan North on BBC iPlayer(opens in new window).
