Brian Blessed is a pretty cool, if slightly odd guy, so his latest appearance on Radio 4 was always going to get people talking.
When the actor decided to tell a story from all the way back in the 60s when he delivered a baby in Richmond Park, Twitter exploded and rightly so.
He elaborated, and after hearing just what happened, it’s little surprise people are still talking about it.
I rushed over to her…gradually I got the baby out.
The afterbirth came out, then I bit it loose and just called for help. We were both covered in blood…I was wiping her and licking the baby’s face and the ambulances came.
Here are some of the best tweets of the bunch…
.@BBCRadio4 should give Brian Blessed his own show.

Some people were more concerned for the woman…
Can you imagine …giving birth in a park & Brian Blessed comes into view #midweek

Saw Brian Blessed trending and thought he was dead but then realised that he couldn't be dead because he's Brian Blessed.

I saw Brian Blessed trending at the #1 position, genuinely afraid he'd died. He's top of my 'Do not die' list. pic.twitter.com/nuzOPGFiJQ

I am apparently not the only one who saw Brian Blessed trending this morning and feared the worst…phew…

FS twitter, saw Brian Blessed was trending and automatically assumed the worst. Why do you do this to me?
