The London Eye

Richard Branson Laura Robson

It seems the London Eye and I will never see eye to eye!

To announce Virgin Active becoming the first Health andRacquets Club in the UK to open its tennis clubs for free, Laura Robson and I wanted to play a tennis match on the London Eye.


Sadly, when we arrived there was a mechanical fault, so I have still never set foot on the Eye. We still managed to enjoy a fun game in the sunshine on the Southbank, and encourage people to give tennis a try for free.



The last time we were at the London Eye was one of the best pranks ever. I was woken up at 5.30am one morning to be told that theBA-sponsored London Eyehad a technical problem - they couldnt erect it.


As the world's press looked on, we scrambled a blimp and the end result was an airship flying over the wheel bearing the slogan BA Can't Get It Up!!"
