Adventurer Ben Fogle braved the cold – and radioactivity – as he bathed naked in the Pripyat River near Chernobyl on a trip to Ukraine.
The adventurer, who was in the war-torn country to deliver relief supplies to those in need, tells me: “The dip was in solidarity with my Ukrainian brothers and sisters.
“Despite the risks, I felt compelled to join them for a brief respite from the horrors of war.”
Ben, who has Ukrainian ancestry on his father’s side, first visited the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone for a Channel 5 documentary last year.
Isaac Hempstead Wright saw a lot of blood as an actor on Game Of Thrones, so his new career as a doctor should be a no-brainer.
The 23-year-old, who played Bran Stark in the fantasy drama, has just entered medical school with hopes of becoming a surgeon.
He’s not the only Thrones star turning away from acting.
Nell Tiger Free, who played Myrcella Baratheon, wowed concertgoers with a live set at Putney’s Half Moon earlier this month and has popstar in her sights.
She has some acting credit to her name, but The Crown star Dominic West’s daughter Martha has other creative talents.
I can reveal that the 24-year-old leftist secretly wrote salacious novels under a pseudonym.
Martha, who studied English literature at Oxford, publishes poetry and stories on the Lickerish Library website, a “platform for female eroticism”.
One of Martha’s poems too explicit to publish here is a sexy modern retelling of the medieval knight Sir Lancelot seducing Guinevere.
