Welwyn Garden City man wins �10,000 on Total Wipeout
A MAN dubbed “half man, half worm” has won �10,000 after he destroyed TV’s craziest assault course on Total Wipeout.
Andy Cowper, from WGC, bounced across big red balls, battled with punches in the face, climbed up a water raft and was whacked by huge swinging letters on his way to winning the BBC One programme, filmed in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
During his glorious route, not only was Andy “the one to beat” throughout the series of assault courses, but the 22-year-old also smashed the all-time record for the final, and most important, circuit – Wipeout Zone.
As he prepared himself for the daring last round, Andy, who was nicknamed “wiggly, wiggly” by the show’s co-presenter Richard Hammond when he performed dance move The Worm, yelled: “Watch I’m going to break the record.”
His time of one minute, seven seconds, certainly proved that.

Looking back at his four- second victory – which was filmed in September but not shown on TV until Saturday night – Andy said: “It still feels great obviously.
“Everyone has been congratulating me on Facebook and one person even recognised me in Morrisons, so it’s been a bit mad.”
