Oh, I think that was good, and very selfless of him.
Doesn't mean I don't want to punch him though
Agreed, I know I've mentioned it before but it's a comparison worth making - when Eddie Izzard did his arguably much more impressive marathon challenge you'd be forgiven for having no idea it had happened as so little attention was given to it.
Walliams dons a pair of trunks to swim a distance done by many people before him and suddenly he's a national hero, so he does it again and gets even more attention which he cannot pretend he isn't loving.
I don't know why Walliams efforts are given so much more publicity and airtime than Izzard's were, or what it is about David that they love so much more than the much more altruisticaly minded Eddie, but there is something very unpleasant and almost crowing about the attention Walliams is getting.
I actualy feel very uncomfortable watching anything to do with his charity swims now, as it almost feels as if the BBC is been willingly compliant in providing him with a platform on which he can boast of his good deeds.
And his oh-I'm-straight-but-so-camp!-am-I-gay? schtick got old long ago, and I still don't understand what its purpose was.
