Skinner reveals brush with the law

Frank Skinner has revealed he faced a breath-test after being pulled over by police - despite being teetotal for 25 years.

The comedian, who was given the tube into which he blew as a keepsake, said he was pulled over after police suspected him of speeding.

The Absolute Radio presenter said: "I thought, I've never been more confident of passing a test in my life."

Frank said he was asked to stop while driving over Tower Bridge in London.

The police officer asked if he had been drinking that evening and he replied: "I can tell you now, I haven't had a drink since September 24 1986."

The comic added: "He just looked at me in disbelief."

He conceded that he had a nagging concern about the breath-test, saying: "I think it's because, even though I haven't had a drink since then, I've never felt fully sober since."

Frank presents a Saturday morning show for Absolute.
