You may remember some time ago we reported that comedian Rufus Hound very kindly agreed to give away his beautiful limited edition Steve McQueen Triumph Bonneville motorcycle in aid of Red Nose Day’s #twittermillion campaign, where a wide range of celebrities including Lily Cooper, Fearne Cotton and Davina McCall asked their Twitter followers to donate money to raise a million pounds through social media alone. Rufus was one of only a few of the celebrities to offer an incentive for his followers’ participation and what an incredible incentive it was!

In the picture along with Rufus is lucky winner, Antony Rolls, who not only got to keep this amazing bike but also rode off in style, wearing Rufus’ Steve McQueen King leather jacket!

Our congratulations to Antony (we are not jealous one bit!) and massive thanks to Rufus for so generously supporting Red Nose Day.
