Countryfile presenters Matt Baker, Ellie Harrison, Tom Heap, Margherita Taylor, Steve Brown, and Charlotte Smith took part in the show’s 2021 ramble. Now in its seventh consecutive year, the challenge left BBC viewers in tears on Sunday as they heard the heartbreaking stories of the young people joining the presenters on the ramble.

In the latest instalment of Countryfile, the six presenters set off on their rambles with separate groups of inspirational young people.

John Craven was on hand to cheer on the teams and catch up with members of the public on their own organised rambles. 

Countryfile viewers were left in tears as Matt took on the challenge in the Lake District with Alfie and his sister Elizabeth.

Alfie and his family have been supported by Hope House Hospice since the youngster was diagnosed was Osteosarcoma – a form of cancer that resulted in him having his leg amputated in 2018.
