Weeks ago, we signed up to the Eden Project Sleepout on 19 November.
After news headlines about the number of kids expected to be homeless over Christmas, we heard from a couple who have been sleeping in their car for the last 7 months.
With their permission, we met the couple, and here's what happened..
We (and they) are overwhelmed by all the offers of support and your outpourings of generosity.

Our hearts melted today when we spoke to a very honest couple of how they have resorted to sleeping in their car, for the past 7 months.
Here's the story and the responses we received.

Could Neil be the next Cadbury's Milk Tray Man?
Tristan entered Neil to be the next Cadbury's Milk Tray man - we help him fill in the application form
Or could it be a woman?
It seems that we need to do a supporting video - so we came up with suggestions!
Do you think he looks the part?
Text suggestions included:
The milk tray man fought off sharks to deliver the chocolates but we wouldn't do that to you so I thought you could go to Gweek seal sanctuary and roll around in one of there pools with the seals and with them looking for a date online you might get lucky at the same time ha ha from Kathryn caddy (no relation)
Mr Neil Milk Tray. Have a go on the Zip Wire at Menheniot. Tim Penzance
Hi Neil Tina how about zip wiring over eden in dinner suit best wishes Caroline Fourpaws grooming nr Helston xx
Hi guys. I reckon Neil should do a Poldark parody for Milk Tray. Galloping along the Cornish cliff top, shirt billowing, hair flowing (?) Astride a magnificent stallion. From Shell in Redruth
and on TWITTER

It turns out that squeaky clean Aidan Turner admits he 'exaggerated' his riding prowess to land the Ross Poldark role - but we got to asking what lies you have told, or been told...
We had some interesting comments but were then blown away by the bravery and honesty of listeners.
Anon: The biggest lie I was told 'I won't hit you, again'
