Lockdown lament: I’m all dressed up to stay in!
A dapper-dressed Jimmy Cricket has posted a poignantly funny lockdown lament on social media.
The famous comedian produced the video as part of his We’re doing this together series.
He published his rhyming lament on both Twitter and Facebook, where it has had several thousand views.
Jimmy, 74, is dressed in a smart dinner jacket and bow tie.
He begins and ends his poetic lament by saying: “I’m all dressed up to stay in!”
For the past six weeks, Jimmy has been sending all his fans and friends daily togetherness messages via video as the world fights coronavirus.
The UK government announced on 24 March it was imposing strict new curbs on life in the UK.
Jimmy posted his first video on social media two days earlier with the message: “We can do this together!”
He told a few jokes in the clip and urges people to help each other in these tough times.
He said: “Once we get though this, at the end of the tunnel, we’ll all have a great big huddle together.”
A nationwide round of applause has been taking place at 8pm every Thursday since the start of the lockdown.
The aim is to show gratitude to the NHS staff and key workers.
