St Helens actor Michael Parr is to trek to Everest base camp for the Steve Prescott Foundation’s latest challenge.

The Emmerdale heartthrob will join a number of ex-rugby league aces, including Lee Briers, Alan Hunte, Mike Wainwright and Iestyn Harris.

Organisers are hoping the adventure, which starts on October 13, will top the £150,000 raised by last year’s trek up Mount Kilimanjaro.
