Ed Stafford is the Guinness World Record-holding first man to walk the Amazon. He was European Adventurer of the Year 2011.

Countryfile presenter, Anita Rani, has worked on a broad range of shows, including Four Rooms, Sky Sports, Watchdog and The One Show, and has travelled around the world for BBC documentaries, including Russia on Four Wheels and Seven Wonders of the Commonwealth.

Born in Jamaica, Dwayne came to the UK at the age of six. His formative years in the UK were in inner city London and, wrapped up in the world of street gangs, he became a victim of both knife and gun crime. After a life threatening incident Dwayne made the decision to change his life… forever.
So in 2010, Dwayne set himself his first of many challenges, becoming the first black Briton to walk over 400 miles to the magnetic North Pole.
Since then his life has become richer, living a life of adventure and exploration, Inspiring young people nationwide to explore the ‘great outdoors’ – wherever that may be.
As a consequence Dwayne has been awarded the City of London’s highest honor, The Freedom of the City of London for his work with young people.
