Ooops, not exactly a golden touch
TV adventurer Steve Backshall may have the golden touch when it comes to wild animals but not necessarily with other things.
His hands were not so steady with the Olympic gold medal won by fiancée Helen Glover in the women’s coxless pairs in Rio.
He dropped the medal, denting it and had to rush it off for repair to Bourne End Jewellers where head silver and goldsmith Richard Bull was able to come to the rescue and repair it.
Ms Glover revealed his gaffe when she appeared on BBC Breakfast on Wednesday last week. She then tweeted her fiancé to apologise for ‘dobbing him in’.
The Buckinghamshire-based couple are due to marry later this month.
