He also had his own programme on BBC Radio 2, featured in The Krankies Klub alongside The Krankies (who else!) and Bobby Davro and appeared on the Royal Variety Show (1984). Jimmy appeared in the 2007 Comic Relief video of The Proclaimers’ song “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” which featured Matt Lucas and Peter Kay.
His best-known catchphrases include “come closer!” and “…and there’s more!”.
He wears a funny hat, has his wellies on the wrong feet and regularly gets a Letter from Mammy!
And there’s more…!
