London, Nov 3 (IANS) Singer Gary Barlow has assembled nine celebrities to attempt to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, which is 19,340 ft high, for the charity Comic Relief.Thesun.co.uk reports Barlow saying: “I went to Africa for Comic Relief 18 months ago and the images from that trip have stayed with me and made me want to do something big to make a difference and raise money. The other people on the climb feel similarly, so it made sense to ask them to join me.

“I have chosen the people I want to be stuck on the side of a mountain with, even if we are the least likely you would expect to find there. We are all nervous and are trying to fit training into our schedules, but the team spirit, enthusiasm and commitment are incredible.”
