Blessed be the voice

A successful social media campaign means that it will soon be possible to download the dulcet tones of Brian Blessed onto your TomTom SatNav system.

A group called ‘Campaign to get Brian Blessed to do a voice over for my sat nav’, was set up by Richard Gardner and his friends Nik Hewitt and Stewart Gore. They were told that they would have to prove that there was sufficient interest and so they set up a Facebook campaign to make their dream a reality and 25,000 signatures later, TomTom had no choice but to accede to the demand.

The 73 year old Shakesperean actor is said to be ‘thrilled’ at the prospect and the voiceover should be available in the autumn.
