Disaster struck on Mount Snowden after Alishba slipped and broke her ankle[/caption]

Alishba and fellow teens Sahr, Harrison and Tyrone joined Dwayne Fields in 2021 as he prepared them for an expedition up Mount Snowdon.

The four youngsters were outdoor enthusiasts from the city who hadn’t had the chance to get to grips with nature beyond – and things soon took a turn for the worse.

Dwayne took it upon himself to get the teens used to the terrain outside the city, taking them hiking, rock climbing and abseiling in preparation for the Snowdon climb.

However, during a hike, Dwayne revealed disaster had struck Alishba.

In the pre-recorded clip, he said: “But there’s real drama, too, just a few moments later away from the cameras, Alishba has hurt her leg bouldering. 

“It looks bad, so we need to get her downhill to safety. I’m gutted for her. This is something none of us wanted to see.”

As part of the review episode, Alishba returned to Countryfile to delve into the extent of her injury.

Alishba recalled: “The second it started raining I felt myself slip and then I just dropped.

“And then I caught my foot between the rock and the crash mat itself – I heard the crack and that’s when I knew, you know, I had done something to it. 

“I couldn’t stand up and I couldn’t walk or anything like that so they had to carry me down the mountain and I had like one person on either side and they had to switch quite a few times as well.”

Explaining the specifics, she added: “There was like two breaks, there was a big one and a slightly smaller.

“So yeah, they told me I’d broken it and I was in shock because I’d never broken anything before.”
