Carol recalled: “The bravest thing I’ve ever done was… hang-gliding for The One Show. 

“I had to wait all day for the clouds to clear, which meant I was getting more and more nervous. 

“Finally, we were good to go. I was hanging on for dear life as we were climbing, with my arms wrapped around this lady who was an expert. 

“Then, the towrope snapped. It was terrifying, but she was brilliant and glided us back down safely.
