The Black Eyed Peas star told the BBC, "It feels like a dream, right. It's something you always saw on TV growing up, so to be here today in the UK, with all the hard work it took me to get to this level to be able to do that... and now I'm here in the UK running the torch. It's great."

Apparently he knew about the honor for about a year and was told not to speak about it. As the July 27 opening ceremony gets closer, we're willing to bet more stars will be carrying the torch! Just last Thursday, soccer stud David Beckham brought the flame from Athens to the U.K. for its 70-day trek around Great Britain.
