Jimmy Cricket has finally got his hands on a set of concrete wellingtons which will replace the pair stolen last summer – but he won’t be taking them home just yet.
His friend and fellow funnyman Ken Dodd has bought the replacements, having given Jimmy the original wellies for his 50th birthday .
The first set were taken from Jimmy’s garden last April, a theft which left him “devastated” and caused quite a stir in the national media.
Jimmy is famous for wearing green wellington boots, marked with the letters R and L on the wrong feet, during his acts.
The Northern Irish entertainer is pictured above in the foyer of The Spa Theatre in Bridlington with the package containing the replacement concrete wellies after they were delivered there.
Ken recently appeared at The Spa Bridlington, where he signed the new wellies, and they will be presented to Jimmy when he performs at the same venue on Sunday, 24 August.
So the saga is finally set for a happy ending… well almost, as Jimmy still lives in hope that the original pair will be returned one day!
