Rizzle Kicks "Blown Away" By Support After Running Olympic Torch Relay In Eastbourne

18 July 2012, 12:07

The 'Mama Do The Hump' stars are the latest celebrity stars to take part in the event ahead of the upcoming London Games.

Rizzle Kicks were pictured running the Olympic Torch Relay thanks to Coca Cola in Eastbourne yesterday (17th July).

The 'When I Was A Youngster' stars were all smiles as they greeted the hundreds who came to watch at the side of the roads and said they were "blown away" by the support shown during their run.

"Carrying the Olympic Flame today was brilliant," they told the Herald following their run. "We met some massively inspirational Future Flames and were totally blown away by the cheers from everyone who came down to see us.

"Thank you for the support."

The pair carried the flame across the seafront of the town and received a guard of honour by the local rowing team.

Dame Kelly Holmes and comedian Eddie Izzard were also seen running with the flame earlier in the day.

Other musicians who have helped as torchbearers so far include Will.i.am and The Wanted.

The Black Eyed Peas man's stint caused some controversy – something which Cheryl Cole told Capital was unnecessary as he is an "honorary Brit".

Meanwhile, the Rizzle Kicks are currently working on their new studio album and have teased collaborations with Blur's Damon Albarn and Jamie Cullum.

The group also recently helped launch Arsenal football club's new away kit.
