Jimmy added: “There was also a great contribution from dancer Stevie Jaxx who performed an energetic and agile routine, all the more remarkable as in the lead-up to the show he was bed-laden with flu.

“He put in a sterling performance on stage alongside singing partner Paula Martine.

“Stevie and Paula also arranged for performers from their Popstarz Academy to  open each half of the show and the entire afternoon was a great advert for North Wales talent.”

Jimmy Cricket took a break from his busy pantomime schedule to headline a show at a bingo club just five days before Christmas.

The visit to the Top Ten Bingo Club in Rhyl, North Wales, was on one of Jimmy’s only days off from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in which he had been featuring on Teesside.

During the night, Jimmy was greeted by a supportive crowd as the majority of those who had come for the earlier Christmas games of bingo had decided to stay behind to witness some festive fun from him.

He said: “I was happy to take on this additional commitment as everyone present in Rhyl was in festive spirit and it made for a really nice atmosphere.”
