Former Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas a.k.a. Jason Grimshaw is doing a "10 marathons in 10 days" challenge for charity.

He wants to raise £50,000 for the mental health charity "Calm Zone".  3 days in and Ryan's feet are already covered in blisters making it very difficult to put his feet on the ground.  He admitted it's been tougher than he imagined and he is exhausted but plans on staying focused and completing the challenge.

His friend Keith Duffy surprised him on his route in Birmingham as Ryan walked from London to Manchester, hiding behind a bridge on the canal as Ryan passed by.

The pair started up a friendship many years ago when Keith played barman Ciaran in the "Rovers Return" on Coronation Street.  Keith walked one of the 10 marathons with Ryan to show his support.
