Celebrity Race Across the World has crowned the winners of its 2023 season.

Tonight's (October 25) episode saw the race from Marrakech to Tromsø conclude, with Good Morning Britain host Alex Beresford and dad Noel arriving first at the final checkpoint.

The final leg of the journey began in Berlin, with Alex and Noel in the lead for the first time after previous race leaders Billy and sister Bonny withdrew from the competition due to a family emergency.

Meanwhile, All Saints' Melanie Blatt and McFly's Harry Judd were only hours behind Alex and Noel, hoping to catch up.

Alex and Noel took advantage of their lead, working at a sauna in Sweden to earn some money. Harry and Emma went a more direct route through Norway, whereas Melanie and mum Helene opted to go through Finland.

Once in Tromsø, the teams were directed to the Arctic Cathedral, where they were instructed to take the Fjellheisen cable car to the Observation Deck — their final destination.

After a tense dash through the streets of the Norwegian city, Alex and Noel made it to the finish line first — with Harry and Emma following just four minutes behind and Melanie and Helene coming in third place.

Reflecting on the victory and journey with dad Noel, Alex said: "It feels fantastic. We feel like we're on top of the world right now.

"This is the toughest experience I have ever had. But we got to travel together, as men, and that isn’t something that every father and son get to do, and for me, that's why this has been unforgettable and something that I will cherish for the rest of our lives."
