Rylan Collapses As He Finishes 24-hour Karaoke Challenge For Children In Need
The Supermarket Sweep host and BBC Radio 2 presenter has raised £928,070 so far for the charity and he did it in the most fun, flamboyant and Rylan way you could imagine - by singing his heart out for a full day and night.
The star began the feat on Tuesday morning, singing through the night and ending around 9.15am on Wednesday morning at the BBC Radio 2 studios in London.
In total he sang 231 songs, helped along by more than 90 celebrity guests including Craig David, Nicole Scherzinger and Rick Astley.
He even had to eat spoonfuls of honey every hour to keep his vocal cords coated.
We're exhausted just thinking about it - we imagine belting out Whitney and Mariah gets a little bit tiresome even after an hour, so this was an epic effort from the presenter.
Rylan, 31, looked overcome with emotion as he rounded off his stint singing Tina Turner's The Best alongside M People's Heather Small.
As the countdown to the end began, led by Zoe Ball, she then went onto announce he'd raised a huge £756,462 in just 24 hours, with the figure leaping up to £928,070 within hours of him completing the task. We wonder if he'll hit one million? What a hero.
But Rylan, for once, was almost speechless, falling to his knees and clasping his face. We assume it was due to relief the singing was finally over, mixed with the fact he'd raised such an incredible amount of money.
He told Radio 2's Zoe Ball as he approached the end of the challenge: "I am in such a state this morning."
"It doesn't feel real. None of it feels real."
We take our hat off to him, it sounds like one of those things you think will be hilarious, but quickly becomes tiresome.

Shortly after completing the challenge he tweeted: "I'm not really with it, but can't thank you enough for all your donations for @BBCiN #KaRYoke on @BBCRadio2.
"Nearly 900K now I can't believe it. Thank you xx".
We just hope he's gone home now for a hard earned rest.
