A beer shop in Bolton got a surprise visit from a comedian on tour in the area yesterday.

Darrly and Sarah Leech, who own Bunbury's on Chorley Old Road, were delighted to see Ed Byrne enter the premises.

The comedian has presented Just for Laughs and also Uncut! Best Unseen Ads. 

He has been a regular guest on Mock the Week making 66 appearances on the show.

And while he was on the way to a gig at The Albert Hall in the town centre he found himself invited to beer shop Bunbury's by Bolton comedian Chris Kehoe.

The owners posted on social media that it was good to see "the second funniest person to visit Bunbury's today" and wished him well at his later show.
