The award-winning comedian and TV presenter, 45, brought his Regional Trinket show to the Grand Theatre on Friday and Saturday, with tickets sold at £28.50, to tell of his recent highs – including his star-studded wedding – and his lows – which involved being stuck on a farm during lockdown.

And he poked fun at his own celebrity status while walking on the Comedy Carpet in front of the Tower.

Photographer Andy Hollingworth said: “‘Can we find me?’ he chuckled. Quick as a flash, he took off his hat, donned those iconic glasses and [led] next to his moniker.

“He’s not showing off – in fact, the absolute opposite. At the core of Alan’s beautiful camp comedy is the ridiculousness of it all.

“Alan can’t quite believe his own story – he pokes fun at his A-list experience.”

One fan, who was in the audience, said Alan put on a “fantastic show”.
