News: The Last Leg's Alex Brooker Pays Tribute To Pioneering Paralympian And also Leaps Onto Bouncy Castle

The Last Leg's Alex Brooker has paid tribute to Margaret Maughan, who has passed away aged 91. Margaret Maughan (pictured) was the first ever Paralympic Gold medallist in Rome in 1960.

Brooker retweeted the tweet from Paralympics GB which also said: "Margaret we thank you, we salute you for all that you did and we will never forget you. On the honour of lighting the Cauldron at the London 2012 Paralympics, Margaret said: “I felt very, very proud to be a part of such a huge movement. From a small beginning in the simple days to seeing what it had become has been a marvellous feeling”

Brooker co-hosts C4's The Last Leg with Josh Widdicombe and Adam Hills on Fridays at 10pm. The team is presenting the current series from their respective homes.

It has been a busy week for Brooker. He was given a Taskmaster challenge by Alex Horne - whose band The Horne Section is the Last Leg's current house band – to make a “magnificent” catch and did it by attempting to grab a giant football while leaping onto a bright pink bouncy castle.
