UK celebrities including Chris Moyles, Cheryl Cole, Alesha Dixon, Fearne Cotton, Gary Barlow and Ronan Keating are attempting to climb Mount Climb Kilimanjaro to raise £1 million for Red Nose Day 2009. Money raised will be used to purchase malarial nets as well as fund other good causes in Africa and UK.

They have an eight day trek to get to the summit of Kilimanjaro at 5,895m, click here to see photos of the route they plan to follow

You can follow their progress and donate to this good cause on the Red Nose website

Good luck to them all!
