Jordan Fielder TOUCHED BY FAME
They used to say ex-England goalie David Seaman had the safest hands in football.
And he put them to good use when he had to identify world jet ski champ Jordan "micromissile" Fielder.
Jordan, 16, of Main Street, Gunthorpe, appeared in the "feel the sportsman" round of popular BBC1 quiz show They Think It's All Over.
Team captain David and his sidekick Rory McGrath were blindfolded and had to identify Jordan, who was sitting on his jet ski at the time, using only the sense of touch.
But the pair quickly guessed it was him - and earned two points for their team.
Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond was the other guest on David's side.
Jordan and family went to the BBC's studios in London on Monday to film the show, screened tonight at 9.30.
He said: "It was great fun.
"I was given my own dressing room and everything and, after the shoot, I got to hang out with the stars in the green room.
"I spoke to Richard for quite a while after and he was quite keen to get me on his show as well.
"I've done telly before, but usually, I'm in front of camera, after a race. This was different, because anything could have happened.
"But it was a great laugh. At the end of the day, it's a funny show, so I just enjoyed the moment."
Jordan, who went to Toot Hill Comprehensive in Bingham, began to jet ski aged ten.
He is the adult slalom record holder, after taking the record from Tim Bushman of the US at the World Jet Ski Finals at Lake Arizona last October.
He trains once a week on water, but exercises two or three hours a day.
Jordan is semi-professional, with sponsorship from US wetsuit company Slippery When Wet.
He is US-based and will soon fly back to train for the new season.
Jordan added: "I hope to turn pro soon. But the sport is still relatively small, so there are only a handful of people who earn an actual salary from it."
