This month former Welsh Rugby international Richard Parks set a new British record for the fastest solo unassisted and unsupported journey to the South Pole.
Richard is finally back on home soil - and he took time out of his relentless schedule to speak to Jonathan Hill and Ruth Wignall on the ITV News sofa.
Explorer Richard Parks is claiming to have set a new British record for the fastest solo, unsupported and unassisted journey to the South Pole. His team say he completed the journey from the Antarctic coastline in 29 days, 19 hours and 24 minutes.
That would be the second fastest time for the journey in history, beating the previous British record - set by polar explorer Hannah McKeand - by just under ten days. The former Wales rugby player is just the nineteenth person to attempt a solo, unsupported and unassisted journey to the South Pole.
