Actor/comedian David Walliams, one half of the "Little Britain" duo that recently starred in the "I'm with Stupid" video, yesterday successfully swam the English Channel (21-miles from Dover to Cap Griz Nez). The swim has so far raised £400,000 for the Sport Relief charity. To keep going, David sang Pet Shop Boys' songs, commenting, "I was thinking about lots of Pet Shop Boys songs, Morrissey songs and Abba songs, it helped to calm me down." It's not too late to sponsor David. Just click on the Sport Relief link below. To read more about David's achievement, go to the Independent site.
