Hello Alan, I am Alan.

There was witty banter when Great Yarmouth Borough Council’s tourism boss, Alan Carr, chatted with his showbiz and comedy counterpart Alan Carr when he appeared on Radio 2’s Alan & Mel’s Summer Escape show to talk up the delights of Great Yarmouth.

Mr Carr faced a series of questions as part of a feature called Summer Seaside Survey when he was pitched against the Isle of Wight.

He painted a diverse picture of a fun destination with a rich maritime heritage with lots to do and see; he even had time to mention that Great Yarmouth introduced the fish finger to the world.

The show’s producer, Malcolm Prince, said: “Great Yarmouth’s Alan Carr did a sterling job engaging in some witty banter with Alan and Mel.

“We loved the prospect of Alan Carr meets Alan Carr; clearly they both loved Great Yarmouth – so expect a stream of people following their lead.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
