Eric cycling 3,000 miles to save his marriage

I'm doing something big to prove to her

– Eric on how he cycled to win back the heart of his wife Angie

Originally weighing in at 560 lbs (40 stone), Eric Hites created a blog called Fat Guy Across America to share his journey of losing weight and winning back his wife Angie, by deciding to ride his bike across the United States to prove to her that he can change.

Partially inspired to embark on the adventure by the Proclaimers song, I''m Gonna Be (500 miles), Eric will be riding much more than that as the distance from coast to coast is approximately 3,000 miles (4,800km).

Eric joins us via a studio in Rhode Island while his wife Angie joins us on the phone from their home in Indiana.

This morning we're joined by investigative reporter Mark Williams-Thomas live from Calais and mum Vanessa Challess live from her home in from Kent, who fears she may give birth on the roadside due to local gridlock.

Cooking dirty means cook it directly on the coals

– Adam Richman

Fire up the coals, prepare a potato salad and skewer those kebabs - barbecuing is the name of the game in new sizzling culinary challenge. The heat is on as eight grilling enthusiasts compete to become the first ever BBQ champ.

Presenter Myleene Klass and Judge Adam Richman are at the helm and they're both here today to talk everything charcoal.

Mylenne said, "This show blew my mind. We saw people infusing smoke in strawberries. I even learnt how to cook dirty!" Adam clarifies what that means, saying, "It means cooking directly on the coals. You can literally do anything from bell pepper to garlic, onion, spring onion, right on the coal."
