Around 340,000 confirmed cases of the illness – also known as Covid-19 – have been confirmed globally, with about 15,000 deaths.

The UK government has just announced it is imposing strict new curbs on life in the UK.

Jimmy posted the video on social media with the message: “We can do this together!”

He tells a few jokes in the clip and urges people to help each other in these tough times.

He says: “Once we get though this, at the end of the tunnel, we’ll all have a great big huddle together.”

Fr Frankie Mulgrew, Jimmy’s younger son, is getting around the coronavirus pandemic by having Mass videoed.

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales have said public liturgies should cease until further notice because of the coronavirus.

Many churches are getting around the problem by streaming their services online.

He filmed Mass on Sunday 22 March and dad Jimmy posted the video on his Twitter page.

Jimmy, 74, tweeted: “At this unprecedented time when Sunday Worship is on hold in Churches up and down the Country, here in this link you can join Fr Frankie at St James and All Souls Parish’s broadcast 10 am Mass 22nd of March 2020 at Salford.”

Comedian Jimmy said: “What a fantastic idea! Me and Mrs C. will be applauding at our front door!”

David and Victoria Beckham are other celebrities reported to be backing the campaign.

Numerous stars went to their Instagram page to encourage their fans to support the NHS.

Team Cricket just miss out on final two of BBC TV show 150 150 mhamer

Team Cricket just miss out on final two of BBC TV show

Henry Kelly and Jimmy Cricket are two of the contestants in the Ireland-themed edition of Pointless

Jimmy Cricket and his team partner Henry Kelly just missed out on reaching the final two of a BBC TV quiz show.

The pair were among four teams on BBC One’s Ireland-theme edition of Pointless on Saturday (14 March).

The programme went out on BBC One at 6.05pm.

It also featured Foster and Allen, Pauline McLynn, Vogue Williams, Clodagh McKenna and Anna Haugh.

Radio and television broadcaster Henry (pictured above with Jimmy), presented Going for Gold from 1987 to 1996.

There was a jackpot of £2,500 which would go to two charities chosen by the finalists – but only if they guessed a pointless answer.

Jimmy, who came up with a particularly good answer of ‘Hale’, and Henry did well in the first round.

And they just missed out on getting any further by only a few points in round two.

Author and actor Pauline McLynn and model and media personality Vogue Williams were the eventual winners.

They beat folk music duo Foster and Allen who finished off the show with a rendition of ‘Maggie’.

Pointless is a quiz in which contestants try to score as few points as possible.

Watch the programme here

To do this, they must come up with the correct but obscure answers to general knowledge questions.

All the questions asked were previously to a panel of 100 individuals in a pre-conducted public survey.

Alexander Armstrong hosts the show with help from Richard Osman.

The programme first aired in 2009 and has had 22 regular series, plus 11 celebrity ones.

Belfast-born Jimmy, who now lives in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, said before the show he really enjoyed the experience.

Well folks, what a fun show to be part of,” he said, though he clearly could not reveal the result beforehand.
