Jamie Jewitt, a Calvin Klein model and star of ITV’s Love Island, was one of the many to take on the course which was put on by 24 Commando Engineer Regiment.

Gerard Fawcitt from the hospice said: “Jamie Jewitt was a fantastic competitor. He threw himself into every challenge and really got stuck in.

“We are thrilled with how many people put themselves through such a gruelling experience in order to support North Devon Hospice.

“To see 600 people wade up rivers, trek through marshland, climb hills and tackle obstacles is truly inspiring.”
