Jimmy Cricket will enjoy a SEVENTH season at his favourite Blackpool hotel.

The famous Northern Irish comic has appeared regularly at the popular Lyndene over the past few years.

But he has performed there on the first Wednesday of every month since July and is now set for another season.

He posted on social media: “It’s time for Turkey and Tinsel at Blackpool’s ever popular Hotel @LyndeneHotel.

“I will be back for my 7th year, (the first Wednesday of every month from July through to December 2022) #liveperformance.”

The Lyndene appeared as the Le Ponderosa in the second series of Peter Kay’s TV hit comedy Phoenix Nights.

It is perched on the seafront and is one of Blackpool’s unique venues as it welcomes tourists and visitors all year round.

England reach Euros final: After the football… the Cricket! 150 150 mhamer

England reach Euros final: After the football… the Cricket!

Jimmy Cricket returned to the Lyndene Hotel on the historic night England beat Denmark to reach the 2020 Euros final.

Gareth Southgate’s side ended the country’s 55-year wait to compete in another major men’s final with a 2-1 win at Wembley on Wednesday.

England had gone behind on the half-hour, conceding their first goal of the tournament to Mikkel Damsgaard’s superb free-kick.

However, England replied quickly as Denmark captain Simon Kjaer turned in Bukayo Saka’s dangerous, low cross six minutes before half-time.

And, in the first half of extra time, the hosts finally went ahead.

Raheem Sterling was controversially deemed to have been fouled by Joakim Maehle in the box.

VAR, the video technology, supported the referee’s award.

England captain Harry Kane saw his poor penalty saved by Kasper Schmeichel, but the Tottenham striker coolly slotted home the kind rebound.

The Wembley showdown with Italy on Sunday night is England’s first appearance in a major football final since the Three Lions’ 1966 World Cup victory against West Germany.

It was a momentous Wednesday night for famous funnyman Jimmy to be performing on stage, particularly at the Lyndene – his favourite Blackpool hotel.

He tweeted: “So last night I went on stage at the Lyndene Hotel in Blackpool after the England and Denmark match and said: ‘Are you ready for this…

“‘Well folks, you’ve had the Football and now it’s time for the Cricket.'”

Jimmy had been eagerly awaiting his return to the Lyndene (see the image below).
