I’ve had some fantastic feedback from my interview with Karl Pilkington. Thank you so much for that.

A few of you have also mentioned a resemblance between Karl and myself, which is funny because I have been mistaken for Karl in the past.

A few years ago, I was filming a Comic Relief charity video and was sitting in a waiting area chatting with a whole host of celebrities, including comedians Peter Kay, Tom O’Connor, Mick Miller, darts player Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor and ex-cricketer and TV star Freddie Flintoff.

I was pouring myself a cup of tea when a certain famous news reader, who shall remain anonymous to save embarrassment, came up to me and said how much he enjoyed my show and that he’d never laughed so much at the way I described holiday destinations.

He told me to keep up the good work, patted me on the back and walked away.

A few people around me burst out laughing.

I was totally confused until Freddie Flintoff said: “He thinks you’re Karl Pilkington!”

At the weekend, me and my Val went to see what was going on in Urmston.

We visited the monthly Artisan Market at its new home in Golden Hill Park and bumped into Kevin ‘Elvis’ Murphy.

He was running his open mic at the market and he very kindly invited me to sing.

After singing New York, New York, Val and I had a really good browse around all the wonderful, colourful stalls, taking in all the smells of the food and colours of the handmade ornaments.

The Artisan Market really is a feast for the senses and the overall atmosphere was that of a community coming together.

After the market we popped next door to the open day and plant sale at The Grove Allotments in Moorside Road.

The allotments are a beautiful relaxing area full of amazing scents and flowers of all varieties.

My late uncle, Walter, had an allotment there for many years and it was lovely to have a cup of tea with the organisers of the event who told us how loved and respected my uncle Walt was on the allotments.

If you know of any events in the Trafford area that you think we should attend please do let me know via my email devlinbookings@aol.com
