The Streets star claims he had a brush with death
You’d think that Mike Skinner from The Streets would try his best to maintain his wide-boy image.
But it seems he’s happy to admit to being a big softy – especially when it comes to fairgrounds.
The 28-year-old says he feared for his life whilst on a ride in Australia. And he never wants to step foot on one again.
‘I swear I almost died,’ he says. ‘We were on a pirate ship-style thing and as the bar came down into my lap I stopped it going too far to avoid it hurting.
‘When we swung upside down I started slipping out of my seat. I was hundreds of feet up in the air, like in an action film. I was bricking it.
‘I’m never going on a fair ride again.’
The poor love.
