How many people can say that they've starred in prime-time TV shows, hit films and on the West End, boxed with the Dalai Lama and tackled Everest not one, but three times!

Brian Blessed:

Even 10 Downing Street I've been invited in there and Cameron invited me in and got me to shout "Gordon's Alive" to try and wake them up.

Everywhere I go, exploring, expeditions.

A Soviet submarine came out on the ice, the captain got out, looked at me and said "can you say Gordon's Alive?"...

Everywhere I go they all want me to say it."
