Olympic Ski-Jumper and all round legend...
EDDIE THE EAGLE - the world's favourite ski-jumper - came back to Britain several years ago after spending three years living and working in Lake Placid, New York State. His stories of how he became an unlikely superstar have had audiences in stitches on both sides of the Atlantic.
He is ideal for personal appearances where his warm and affable personality always makes him many friends.
(Eddie's date of birth - December 5th 1963- is still a Public Holiday for Casualty Departments all over the world). Eddie has a short video to set the scene, followed by a talk with questions and answers.
