Released 17.07.06 Robert Smith, Jodie Kidd and Jessica Kurten had a great time on the judging panel of Only Fools on Horses, the BBC reality show training celebrities to show jump to raise funds for Sport Relief. The show held at Unex Towerlands, which ran for 9 consecutive nights, consistently attracted over 4.2million viewers and actually peaked at 5 million by Saturday’s Final. The brave celebrities included Matt Baker, Nicki Chapman, Sara Cox, Josie D’arby, Jenni Falconer, Diarmuid Gavin, Sally Gunnell, Matt Littler, Paul Nicholas, Suzi Perry, Anna Ryder-Richardson and Ruby Wax. Jenni emerged the winner closely followed by Nicki Chapman. The show raised over £250,000 for Sport Relief.
“I really enjoyed my time judging this show,” said Robert “even if the competitors thought I was being a bit harsh at times! They all did really well and the concept was not only great for Sport Relief, but also for show jumping in Britain as a whole.”
