Look North presenters Harry Gration and Paul Hudson were feeling sheepish after being given a head start in a three-legged race against four woolly jumpers.

Journalist Harry and weatherman Paul are part way through a 120-mile sponsored walk for BBC Sport Relief.

The duo are walking through South, West and North Yorkshire over nine days – with their legs strapped together.

The 3 Counties 3 Legs challenge arrived at Cannon Hall Farm at Cawthorne on Friday lunchtime and there was a surprise for the tied up couple.

Staff at the activity farm put on a special lunch for them – but they could only tuck in if they became sheep racing champions.

Sheep racing – where sheep race around a specially-built track with jumps – is one of the crowd-pullers at Cannon Hall.

When Harry and Paul arrived – to cheers from dozens of youngsters from Cawthorne School – they were taken straight to the race track.

However staff took pity on the exhausted duo and allowed them a head start, letting them join the race on the home straight.

Harry and Paul romped home beating the farm’s fastest sheep Red Ram, Sherbaa, Desert Donkey and Desperate Dave.

The farm’s marketing manager Nicky Hyde said: “Harry and Paul looked very tired when they arrived so we took pity on them.

The racing sheep being prepared for BBC presenters, Harry Gration and Paul Hudson to arrive bound at the ankle for their three legged Sport Relief race at Cannon Hall Farm.

“We sent the sheep all the way round but Harry and Paul only joined the race in the home straight. It was a bit of an unfair advantage and the sheep are still sulking about it.”

Butchers at the farm had cooked up special three-legged sausages tied up with butcher’s twine and served with chips.

Harry and Paul gobbled down the hearty lunch and stayed for almost two hours before heading off for the Kirklees Light Railway at Clayton West.

They were due in Huddersfield on Saturday and the walk finishes in York on March 18.

Two years ago Harry and Look North co-presenter Amy Garcia raised almost £140,000 pounds when they completed the two Yorkshire stages of the Tour de France on a tandem for Sport Relief.
