ANTIQUES dealer John Cameron is joining former stunt legend Eddie Kidd on his London Marathon effort.

Eddie, who is best known for his motorcycle stunts, was left brain damaged after a performance went wrong in 1996.

He has been unable to walk since then and uses a wheelchair.

But on April 17, he swapped his chair for a special walking frame, so he could be on the start line of the marathon.

It is estimated it will take Eddie six weeks to complete the 26-mile course.

And this Saturday he is being joined by Portsmouth antiques dealer John Cameron who will walk for eight hours with him.

John, 40, said: ‘We met while filming Cash In The Celebrity Attic and that’s when he asked me if I would join him on the London Marathon.

‘It’s monumental he’s doing this and puts so much into perspective.’

John and Eddie will be joined by a host of other TV personalities, including Ray Winstone, and John Altman, who played Nick Cotton in EastEnders.

Eddie is raising money for charity Children with Leukaemia.
