Craig David pulls out of Sport Relief Mile in Southampton

Daily Echo: Craig David Craig David

SOUTHAMPTON'S premier singing export has had to pull out of the Sainsbury's Sport Relief Mile tomorrow.

Thousands of fans will be left disappointed after he was forced to withdraw from the event because he was needed for work abroad.

The R 'n' B star had been set to complete the six mile run for charity, the longest possible on the day.

Management for the star apologised to fans who were excited about seeing him at the event saying that Craig had an "incredibly hectic" schedule and wished all the runners the best of luck.

Thousands of mums, dads, sons and daughters are expected to descend on the city tomorrow hoping to add to the £26m raised through last night's Sport Relief broadcast on television.

Funny that.

I was going to climb Mount Everest this afternoon to save all the poor in the world, but had to go to ASDA instead.

What a cop-out. How can anybody believe that.

Perhaps CD can make a contribution to Sport Relief instead. During Live Aid Bob Geldof insisted people did it for free. Nowadays they use events like this for publicity and take the expenses offered. It would be interesting how much was raised after the performers were paid.
