Ooops, not ex­actly a golden touch

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.

Golden mo­ment: He­len wisely keep­ing a tight grip on her medal as she takes a selfie with fi­ancé Steve Back­shall and fam­ily and friends
