Challenge Anneka was quite possible the best TV show from the early 90’s – Anneka Rice and her team building massive construction projects in just three days was not only incredibly impressive but also quality entertainment.
The show is back to celebrate it’s 25th anniversary, but Anneka looks no different from back in 1992!
After appearing on This Morning to discuss the return of the show, where the crew will be revisiting old projects and seeing how they’re doing decades later, viewers at home were shocked by how little she had changed – she ‘hasn’t aged a day’.

Anneka said: “It makes my heart swell that 25 years on we did over 60 projects and most of them still have this amazing legacy, and it’s such an interesting social history arc in how we view disability and all these different issues we tackled, and how our attitudes have changed now,”
She revealed how her and the team are still good friends, and that they regularly meet up especially considering some of the difficulties they went through together. One situation saw them have ‘Serb snipers trained on us’ during a project in Croatia.
She said: “We were under EU protection, and we all wrote letters home thinking we wouldn’t make it out.”
“We were all a challenge family.”
