It's a simple tale of "The Show Must Go On".
A Bedfordshire theatre group has had to recast its lead actor in an forthcoming production of Spamalot, when the person playing King Arthur fell off his bike after riding over a pothole and seriously hurting himself.
Barry Thompson, from Bedford, was due to appear in the show at the Sharnbrook Mill Theatre (4-9 June), but a fractured collar bone and three rib fractures means he's having to rest at home.
The self-confessed "fitness bunny" said it was a "real disappointment not to play this part as I have been rehearsing for it since January".
To quote a song from the show he's performing in "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life".
His replacement is Ian Stark.
