Jimmy Cricket might have thought for a moment he was seeing double at one of his recent Queen’s Platinum Jubilee shows!
The popular funnyman was performing at the latest venue on the tour, part of the royal celebrations.
The Queen, 96, marked 70 years on the throne on 6 February 2022.
However, as with her Golden and Diamond Jubilees, the first week in June hosts a series of high-profile celebratory events.
To help mark the very special occasion, popular entertainer Jimmy has headlined a series of royal-related shows across the country.
Last Friday’s extravaganza was at Carnegie Theatre & Arts Centre in Workington, a coastal town in Cumbria.
And Jimmy posted the photo above right, afterwards.
He said: “My thanks to @CarnegieTheatre and there wonderful staff members, Michael, James, Gillian and Julia for making us feel so welcome.
“And to my double, Mark pictured here, who could be my mirror image reflection! #ARightRoyalKneesUp .”
Three shows remain on the A Right Royal Knees Up tour, which also features Leah Bell and supporting cast.
The next is this afternoon (Tuesday 31 May, 2pm) at the appropriately named Prince of Wales Theatre in Cannock, Staffordshire.
The Spa Pavilion Theatre in Felixstowe, Suffolk, is the next port of call tomorrow (Wednesday).
And the tour’s final destination is the Pomegranate Theatre in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, this bank holiday Friday.
The production is billed as a “feel-good performance packed with show-stopping scenes”.
It also features “sing-a-long memories and spectacular footage as we take a nostalgic journey through the 70-year reign of Queen Elizabeth the Second”.
“Guaranteed to put you in the party mood, this once-in-a-lifetime performance will get your spirits soaring, your hands clapping and your voices bellowing out as we bring you to our rousing flag-waving finale.
“There is no better way of celebrating Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee than by joining us for A RIGHT ROYAL KNEES UP.”
