It all began at Dublin Airport where the group boarded a flight for Manchester, still trying to figure the secret destination. All was revealed when the coach arrived at the incredible Chill Factore, an indoor ski and sports centre adjacent to the Trafford shopping mall.

After a break for lunch it was time for the teams to compete in building a sleigh – good fun, all the more so when you are against the clock.
