Are you grateful for Great Yarmouth?

BBC Radio 1 presenter Greg James is according to his latest post on Twitter.

The 32-year-old, who previously attended the University of East Anglia, tweeted that he was “grateful for Great Yarmouth” following a post by pop star Justin Bieber on March 20, which said he was “grateful for great friends”.

Greg’s post divided opinion, with some people excited that Norfolk was getting a shout out and others in complete disagreement with the statement.

Actor and former Costessey High School student Sam Claflin, known for roles in The Hunger Games and Me Before You, shared some love for the seaside town.

He replied: “All hail the Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach!”

Saskia Barnett added: ““Ayyyy finally someone mentions us, thanks Greg”.

However, Twitter user @ruby_jane21 said: “No one is grateful for Great Yarmouth”.

While Luke Prentice added: “Nobody’s ever said that.”
