Wednesday's challenge saw teams of 10 take over an ice cream barrow from Ronaldo Ices, a regular and popular fixture at the show.

After a hard day of trading - amid weather conditions which were more suited to a cuppa than a cone - Norwich High School for Girls creamed their competition. Part of the profits from the day's sales will be donated to charity.

Simon Edye, managing director and founder of Ronaldo Ices, said: "I started my business by copying the model provided by Italian immigrants in the 19th century. Like them I built a barrow in my front room and went out onto the streets to sell my wares. I was helped, sometimes without being aware of it, by many people. It's my turn now to help entrepreneurs of the future."
