20th May 2018

Great British Speakers star Ben Fogle has conquered Mount Everest, days after revealing he was taking on the gruelling climb in memory of his stillborn son Willem.

Ben Fogle Everest Expedition at Great British Speakers

‘At 7.30am on the 16th April, after more than five weeks of acclimatising and training on Mount Everest, I finally realised a childhood dream when I successfully climbed the 29,000 ft high mountain,’ said Ben.

Unfortunately, his fellow climbing companion former Olympic cyclist Victoria Pendleton had to pull out of the expedition a few weeks earlier due to medical issues.
