Singer Ronan Keating set off with a group of celebrities and 'super swimmers' on a charity crossing of the Irish Sea from Holyhead to Dublin late last night.
The former Boyzone star is joined by TV presenters Jenny Frost and Jason Bradbury, writer and psychologist Pamela Stephenson and British Olympic swimmer Steve Parry.
Keating and his group - who all have personal or family experience of cancer - hope to raise £1 million (€1.13 million) for Cancer Research UK.
Each celeb will take turns swimming for one hour until the group reaches landfall in Dublin - a journey that's expected to take 40 hours and could cover as much as 70 nautical miles due to tidal variations.
