Olympic Torch to Light Flame Across London.

A PHALANX of gold medalists and celebrities will bear the Olympic torch across London on 6 April, as part of the Beijing Olympic Torch relay, which is taking place at various points around the world in the lead up to this summer's Games in the Chinese capital.

Among the big names already announced are gold medalist swimmer Duncan Goodhew, gold medal-winning runner Dame Kelly Holmes and Blue Peter presenter Konnie Huq. The names of more star torch bearers are to be released over the next week.

The route starts at Wembley stadium and ends at Greenwich - where an east-meets-west themed event includes ribbon dancers, gymnasts and a performance by the Sugarbabes - and takes in some of London's most famous sites along the way such as Trafalgar Square, St Paul's Cathedral and Canary Wharf.
