How did the team do in the end?

Unfortunately, Josh was the only member of the team not to make it to the final chase.

Ellen, Kevin and Nehe took on The Dark Destroyer – who is on screens at the moment for a road trip series with pals Mark Labbett and Anne Hegerty – for a prize pot of £3,000

They set up 16 steps for him to beat and he caught them with 22 seconds remaining.
