He’s an American, but for one day he was an honourary Brit. The Voice UK judge will.i.am carried the Olympic Torch through the leafy town of Taunton in Somerset.

The LA-born musician couldn’t put his Twitter-addiction aside for just a few minutes and instead kept updating his 3million followers updated throughout the run.

Olympic torchbearers have been selling their torches for over £100K on Ebay. will.i.am is worth a cool $50million so there’s no wonder he decided to keep his!

Good on ya mate, you’ve made history! He must be the only person EVER to tweet and carry the Olympic Torch!
