Sir Ranulph Fiennes was the first man to reach both poles by surface travel along with Charles Burton, and the first to cross the Antarctic Continent unsupported along with Mike Stroud. In the 1960's, he was removed from the SAS Regiment for misuse of explosives but, joining the army of the Sultan of Oman, received that country's Bravery Medal on active service in 1971. He is the only person yet to have been awarded two clasps to the Polar medal for both Antarctic and the Arctic regions. Fiennes has led over 30 expeditions including the first polar circumnavigation of the Earth, and in 2003 he ran seven marathons in seven days on seven continents in aid of the British Heart Foundation, only 3½ months after a massive heart attack.

In 1993, Her Majesty the Queen awarded Fiennes the Order of the British Empire (OBE) because, on the way to breaking records, he has raised over £18 million for charity. He was named Best Sportsman in the 2007 ITV Great Briton Awards and in 2009 he became the oldest Briton to reach the summit of Mount Everest, raising a total of £6.3m for Marie Curie Cancer Care. The Coldest Journey in 2014 raised £1.3 million for Seeing is Believing. In 2015, he successfully completed the Marathon des Sables raising over £2 million for Marie Curie.

Ranulph has also written 23 books including, Cold, which was published in 2013, Agincourt, which was published in 2014, and Heat, which was published in October 2015, and his latest book, Fear, was published in 2016.
