Currently banged up former cabinet member Chris Huhne has cajoled his ex wife Vicky
into taking his place in the London marathon on his behalf, according to reports.
Huhne was due to compete in the race but pulled out after being sentenced to
eight months of degradation and bum fun in an open prison.
Estranged wife Vicky Price,69, has reluctantly agreed to take the 26 miles on Huhne's behalf
despite suffering from the long term complications imposed by rickets.
Price's only prior experience of distance running had been of trying to catch a bus to
Marble Arch after being stripped of her driving licence.
But Huhne convinced Price to prepare for the gruelling ordeal by competing in last week's
ill-fated Boston marathon insisting it would do wonders for her angina.
Price would have been instantly recognisable to millions due to her characteristic stumbling gait
and her 10 foot tall gorilla costume.
Huhne has also persuaded her to carry a placard advertising the sale of his BMW,
claiming it is 'in both of their best interests' that the car finds a buyer.
The disgraced former MP stood to win a £20 bet with fellow inmate 'Racist Terry' if his ex wife achieved a
personal best of not suffering a massive coronary.
Ms Price hoped that by completing a marathon that she never wanted to run in the first place,
she would help to raise awareness that her ex husband is a massive twat.
