In his latest quest, Graham sat in a bathtub full of slime at the Co-operative in Worle High Stree for 30 hours.

He split the challenge up into two 15-hour sessions, to coincide with the store opening times.

The avid fundraiser collected £666 across the two days of his challenge, with the help of his mum Sandra.

Kind staff added a bucket of hot water to the gunge every hour to make sure he did not get too cold.
