After falling from a first-floor balcony, Steve broke his cervical vertebra (below the skull) and trapped his spinal cord. On his injury, he told the Radio Times: "I wasn't larking around, I just tripped and fell. Of course I wasn't happy about it, but I wasn't wishing the world would end. There was nothing I could change, so I just had to make the most of things."

  Pitch Perfect 4: Everything you need to know A brother and sister, aged 11 and 14, transformed their grandmother's old car into a DIY movie theatre with the help of their science teacher dad. Mikalah and Samuel Strickling removed the seats, seatbelts, carpets, matting and other fittings from the car before making a wooden frame for a mattress. The duo then added a mattress and TV they found on the side of the road into the vehicle. They decorated their makeshift theatre using party lights and their covers. Dad Jacob Strickling told Newsflare: "The kids have had a few nights of watching movies in the car with chips, popcorns and lollies and then spending the night sleeping in the car. "Mikalah has even had a few nights with her friends in the car for sleepovers.

The sportsman has presented for shows such as The One Show, Countryfile, Springwatch and, more recently, Escape to the Perfect Town alongside Jonnie Irwin and Sonali Shah. The TV regular has also presented coverage for the Invictus Games and the BT World Wheelchair Rugby Challenge.

Steve became captain of the GB team

Despite his successful career in the sporting world, Steve dreamt of a TV career from the start. While at school, Steve was told by a careers advisor to forget his presenting dream. "I told him that I wanted to be a wildlife presenter," he told Radio Times.

"I grew up exploring the countryside around where I lived in Kent. [...] and I loved programmes like The Really Wild Show and everything with David Attenborough. But the careers master just told me I wouldn't be able to do that and to forget it."
