TELEVISION’S Matt Baker was spotted in Wigginton on Thursday transporting a woman and a dog on a rickshaw.

The unusual sighting of the One Show presenter, who lives nearby, outside the Greyhound pub as he set off on a 30-mile training stint was part of his training for his Children in Need rickshaw challenge.

The challenge will see Matt ride a rickshaw from Edinburgh to London in eight days.

He will set off on his 484-mile journey on Friday, November 11..
