This programme was not just an event for Sports Relief, but pretty much an event in history, the first mainstream celebrity to swim across the Enlgish Channel to France. David Walliams, star of the great BBC comedy sketch show Little Britain had always dreamt of swimming the English Channel, and he finally decided to make this dream a reality when he started training over eight months before the real event for Sports Relief (part of Comic Relief). He trained both in swimming pools, oceans and many tests for his conditions, all ready for when he started. He was estimated to take at least 14 hours to cross, but he was relieved when completed the almost impossible task in 10 hours 34 minutes. He has won deserved awards for his triumphant achievement. Matt Lucas, partner in Little Britain, narrated and showed up a couple of times, and Robbie Williams makes a quick opinion of what Walliams was doing. Very good!
