Comedian Jim Davidson looks set to ignite his love hate affair with Great Yarmouth when he performs for two nights at the resort's Britannia Pier.
Mr Davidson will be entertaining the crowds with his quick fire lewd humour on Friday August 22 and Monday September 1 as part of his national The Devil Rides Out tour.

“All I said in the past was that Yarmouth was being ruined by people coming in from other places. I am certainly no snob.
“As for running a pier my advice to anybody considering it would be to fly to the Tora Bora mountains in Afghanistan and hide in a cave instead.”
