COMEDIAN Jack Whitehall performed a sell-out warm-up gig at the Octagon theatre in Bolton tonight.

The Fresh Meat star tested his new material on an appreciative audience in the intimate Octagon main auditorium, during which he explored themes including his poshness, bullying at school and his love of The Lion King.

Tickets for the 390-sweater show sold out in 30 minutes.

The British Comedy Award winner's UK tour will visit the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester on March 8.
