UPDATE: From Chortle.co.uk

Eddie Izzard is attempting to run the length and breadth of the UK – jogging more than 1,100 miles over the next few weeks.

He began his effort in Trafalgar Square at 6.30am this morning, en route for Cardiff. By this evening he had made it as far as Egham in Surrey.

From the Welsh capital, he will run to Belfast – except for the Irish Sea bit – and then to Scotland, before returning back to London.

The grueling schedule, in aid of Sport Relief, means he has to run almost 30 miles a day for seven weeks.

During a warm-up jog in London’s East End last week he ran straight into a street brawl.

The 47-year-old spotted a man a man being kicked in the head by another outside a Whitechapel pub, and stepped in to break it up.
