Wal­liams: No ‘ac­ci­dents’ on char­ity swim

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

CAMP char­ity star David Wal­liams has de­nied claims he did a ‘Paula Rad­cliffe’ and crapped in his wet­suit dur­ing last year’s char­ity swim down the river Thames.

The fun­ny­man con­tracted a har­row­ing stom­ach bug while at­tempt­ing the feat for Sport Re­lief.

But the 40-year-old says he didn’t re­sort to soil­ing him­self – like run­ner Paula fa­mously did dur­ing the London Marathon back in 2005. The star of BBC1’S

said: “I had a re­ally up­set stom­ach at the…other end.

“It’s a dif­fi­cult thing to talk about. I didn’t do a Paula Rad­cliffe. But I did just want to lie down. So yeah, that was tough.”
