It's the Grand Final of Let's Dance For Comic Relief on BBC1 this Saturday evening, and we're delighted that one of the stars of the show will be coming here next year.
Comedian Russell Kane is hotly-tipped for his version of Beyonce's Crazy In Love in the show which has been attracting audiences of 7.5m over the last few weeks. You can see his dance here.
Apart from Comic Relief, Russell has won the Edinburgh Comedy Award (formerly the Perrier) and co-presents coverage of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here. We're very excited about him coming to Chorley, even though it's over a year away!
There are still a few tickets left for Richard Herring tomorrow, but be quick!
