Joe Longthorne – currently coming to the end of a lengthy nationwide tour which also saw him starring twice weekly at Blackpool Grand Theatre, and Crissy Rock, who has endeared herself to millions with her stint in the jungle on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and star of the Merrie England’s midweek summer show on North Pier, are getting together to record a charity record.

Following discussions after one of Joe’s recent shows in Blackpool the two friends agreed to record their rendition of Bridge Over Troubled Water together when Crissy recovers from the jungle and Joe takes a break from touring – with all proceeds donated to Cancer Research UK.

In the meantime Joe will be entertaining audiences in Fleetwood when he heads to the Marine Hall on Saturday December 17.

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £20 for adults and £12.50 for children.

To buy tickets call the Marine Hall box office on (01253) 887693 or visit

The following week he will be appearing at The Layton’s Cabaret Lounge with A Christmas Audience With Joe Longthorne and Guests.

The show, which also features Leye D Johns, Darren Coulton and the Storm Showgirls takes pace on Tuesday, December 20 and comes complete with a three course Christmas dinner. Booking details from (01253) 352301.

It will be the entertainer’s first appearance at Layton Institute since he received a standing ovation for a headlining show in November 1986.
