Ben Archer heard it on the [Ambridge] grapevine
However, tonight young Ben Archer revealed the mystery sportsman's identity to a disbelieving David and Ruth.

Here's what Wiggo himself had to say about his appearance: “When I was asked to record a Sport Relief special for The Archers, there was no way I could turn it down. I grew up with it on the radio in the house, and it’s not every day you get to star in the world’s longest running soap opera!"

Ben's convinced that he knows who's coming to Ambridge for Sport Relief.
