TONIGHT’S Blackpool Grand Theatre performance of Joe and Roy’s Thursday Night Live starring Joe Longthorne and Roy Walker has been cancelled.

Joe was involved in a minor accident on Tuesday and has a suspected broken ankle.

A spokesman for The Grand said: “He is in a lot of pain, currently immobile and will be unable to appear in tonight’s show. Joe is very disappointed and feels terrible for letting down the fans and patrons who have booked for the show.”

Neil Thomson, Grand Theatre general manager added: “It is unfortunate Joe has had this accident to his ankle. The shows have been a marvellous success to date and it’s disappointing Joe can’t appear this evening, but accidents do happen.”

There will be an additional 4pm performance on Thursday 1 November, Joe’s last summer season performance date.

Patrons with tickets for tonight wishing to transfer to the 4pm performance or any other performance date should contact the box office on (01253) 290190.
