Matt Baker opens up on being 'overwhelmed' as Countryfile host addresses challenge

Matt Baker was inundated with messages on Instagram as the Countryfile presenter spoke of his latest challenge yesterday. The One Show star admitted he was “overwhelmed” after he recently announced his BBC return.

The 42-year-old spoke out in view of his 226,000 followers as he shared he would be “back” on The One Show.

The presenter stepped down from his hosting duties on the BBC programme back in March.

He has now broken his silence as the Countryfile presenter is set to return for BBC’s Children In Need’s Rickshaw Challenge.

The small-screen star penned: “Back for number 10.

Another person wrote: “You were the only man for the job Matt! You are such an inspiration for those young people, you are caring, considerate and full of support to get them through their own personal challenges! You are just Amazing Matt!”

While a third person added: “Thank you for being part of Team Rickshaw again Matt. I know it’s about the young people but you are also a vital part of it too.”

Matt, who left The One Show in March after a decade, will join six young people supported by Children In Need projects for the challenge – now also in its 10th year.

They will ride 322 miles in the grounds of the Goodwood Estate in Sussex.

In a statement, Matt said he was “delighted” to be back taking part in the Rickshaw challenge.

“In the spirit of doing what we can, we’re doing our best to make it as safe as possible for everybody involved and that includes our supporters that would usually come out to see us,” he explained.

“So this year instead of coming out on the streets we’re asking people to support us from the comfort of their own homes by tuning in to The One Show each evening.”

This year’s efforts will be taking place at the start of next month.
