A Durham-based TV star is set to spread some love and laughter this Valentine’s Day, as she takes to the stage in Billingham for her live comedy show…
Crissy Rock, who plays Janey York in the hit ITV series Benidorm, is promising to lift the spirits of those attending her show by offering a rose for those who wake up without a Valentine’s card or love message.
The comedienne said: “It’s always a sad day to wake up and realise the postman has forgotten your address, and to know your mantle piece is going to look bare for another twelve months. I should know – I’ve been there before!
“I‘m looking forward to sharing some laughter on Sunday afternoon at the Swan in Billingham, and will bring with me some red roses for anyone in the audience needing a lift with a bit of romance in their life. They can dream!” joked the former I’m A Celebrity contestant.
The comedienne was recently featured in TV documentary Celebrity Botched Up Bodies. Surgeons repaired damage that she had previously endured from two unsuccessful procedures. One left her with a scarred chin and lopsided face, while the other involved years of expensive dental work after cancer treatment left her with no teeth.
“Everything is really good for me now, and I‘m really looking forward to having some fun on Teesside this weekend. The people always enjoy a giggle around here!
“It’ll be fun doing my show in the afternoon on such a special day. Sunday afternoons were once the highlight of the week around this region, but in recent years with so many cutbacks in live entertainment, they are virtually non existent these days.
Tickets for Crissy Rock: Live at the Swan on Sunday February 14th (4-7pm) are priced at £6, and are available by calling 01642 553 157.
