COMEDIAN David Walliams felt left out as Wiganer Bradley Wiggins picked up a GQ award when he didn’t.

He joked: “He cycled around France. Big deal, I’ve swum there.”

Meanwhile, Bradley, whose wife Catherine hails from Shevington, is tipped to be favourite for this year’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year award, with odds of 11/10.

Bradley, an Olympic gold medallist, won the Tour De France earlier this year.

The awards, by public vote, are in December.
