The daughter of the late comedian Les Dawson said she keeps his memory alive every Christmas by visiting his statue in the garden near St Annes pier.

Charlotte, now a reality TV star told a national newspaper: “On Christmas morning, we dress him up and put a hat and scarf on to make him feel warmer.”

The 27-year-old added: “Then we go to the chippy, have a pint, and visit the tree in the grounds of the church where mum and dad got married. At Christmas, we always have a little ceremony for him.”

Charlotte was eight months old when Les died of a heart attack in 1993, aged 62.

And she said: “If I could have said one thing to him, it would have been to stop smoking, eat healthily, and not to work as much.

“He had a bit of a nightmare lifestyle and I would definitely have told him to slow down.”
