Patrick Kielty scored another win for Team Bishop in the Clash of the Titans synchronised swimming event for Sport Relief.

The Irish TV presenter took to the water in a shimmering off-the-shoulder swimsuit and a gigantic Pharrell Williams hat to perform his routine to "Happy".

Greg James channelled Lord Allen Sugar complete with The Apprentice theme tune and suit, which he promptly ripped off to reveal a spangly star-print swimming costume.

But it was Kielty's lift that won over the judges. Not so much host Gary Linekar however, who said the following:

"There's a very fine line between syncronized swimming and syncronized drowning."

Team captains Sebastian Coe and John Bishop are going head-to-head in a series of tasks at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Olympic boxing gold medallist Nicola Adams, former cricketer Freddie Flintoff, BBC Radio 1 DJ Grimshaw, comedian Patrick Kielty and TV presenter Helen Skelton joined Team Bishop.

Murs, Radio 1's Greg James, actress Sally Phillips and Winter Olympic skeleton gold medallist Amy Williams teamed up with Coe.


The teams face off in five different sports - track cycling (men's elimination race and women's time trial), team rhythmic gymnastics, synchronised swimming and a swimming relay.

Clare Balding hosts the event at the London Aquatics Centre, while Gabby Logan presents the events at the Lee Valley VeloPark.
