This September, Little Britain star David Walliams will take to the water once again for charity by swimming the Thames for Sport Relief.
Sport Relief legend David Walliams is almost as well known for his incredible cross-Channel swim, which raised £1 million, as he is for co-creating and starring in Little Britain.
On top of his epic Channel challenge, he also swam the Strait of Gibraltar from Spain to Morocco with James Cracknell in 2008 for Sport Relief.
Now a star of screens both big and small, as well as a published children’s author and recipient of a Sports Personality of the Year special award – it seems there’s nothing David can’t turn his hand to.
No doubt about it, this time out, David Walliams is in very deep water. This September he’s swimming the Thames – from Lechlade in Gloucestershire all the way to London. That’s around 140 miles in just eight days and this will be his toughest, most dangerous and physically gruelling challenge yet.
Ending in London, David will pass through several major towns en route including Oxford, Reading, Henley, Maidenhead, Windsor, Kingston and Richmond. He’ll tackle tidal forces, exhaustion and the extremely busy and dangerous local river traffic. He is one soggy legend.
