Chief Channel 4 correspondent Alex Thomson took to Twitter to update his followers on the hilarious effects of free wine onboard a Virgin train.

The presenter was travelling on a Virgin east coast train to Scotland, when some fairly long delays interrupted the journey.

But while most of us would be itching to get going and reach our destination, Alex took advantage of the free wine being dished out onboard.

Also opting to pass the time on Twitter, he updated his 86,000 followers on his progress north – as well as the one-man party he’d started onboard.

His hilarious tweets were littered with spelling errors, as the dangerous effects of an empty stomach and a few too many glasses of red wine took effect.

Things looked to be getting pretty hazy in his first tweet, as he writes: “Train now 2 hours and something Kate – latebut fair play Virgin are just slinging out bottles of win from the bar for free dbdjitlfkzm@cllg@”

With some followers starting to suspect Alex may be slightly merry, some told him to keep the painkillers nearby for the morning.

But their worries didn’t stop Alex from tweeting even more updates from the delayed train.

Later he tweeted a picture of a takeaway tea cup which he seemed to have been allowed to fill with wine.

But as the wine kept coming, Alex took the time to explain what the problem was.

He wrote: “Problem is: have not eaten today and hen Virgin started dealing free wine. It’s going downhul.”

But as his wine cup dried up, train attendant Jackie was on-hand to help out.

Christ Alive – I am in Falkirk. I feel reborn. Is Glasgow anywhere . F

Finally, after passengers were transferred to a different train, Alex eventually made it to Glasgow.

He tweeted: “Soaaaaaaaaagh I HAVE MADE IT TO GLASGOW SHOUT SHOUTYNESS no idea why I came any mor”

The next morning Alex seemed to be slightly fragile and in need of a good breakfast.

Skullwise, a tad jangly this fine morn it has to be noted. Now: food. I need food.
