SIR Bradley Wiggins is to make a guest appearance on the world’s longest running serial drama, BBC Radio 4’s The Archers, in a special storyline for Sport Relief.

Chorley’s four time Olympic gold medal and Tour de France winner will make a cameo as himself in one very special episode at 7pm next Friday, as Sport Relief fever takes hold of Ambridge.

While the locals prepare for their own fundraising event, Sir Bradley arrives to crown the village winner – but not before the cycling hero has an amusing encounter with Lynda Snell and her rusty old bike.

Sir Bradley said: “When I was asked to record a Sport Relief special for The Archers, there was no way I could turn it down. I grew up with it on the radio in the house, and it’s not every day you get to star in the world’s longest running soap opera.”

As one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings the nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives.

The money helps transform the lives of some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people in the UK and across the world.
