Stand-up comedian and TV presenter Keith Lemon gave people a juicy photo opportunity on a visit to Tring last week.

Excited shoppers grabbed their camera phones to get a snap of the Celebrity Juice star, whose trademark phrase is ‘sssh-ting’, waved to fans as he was towed along the High Street aboard a trailer last Thursday.

ITV confirmed that Keith – real name Leigh Francis – was in the area filming an episode of Through The Keyhole, which was revived in 2013 with him as host.

A spokesman for Fremantle Media said: “I’m afraid we can’t reveal any details of the filming as obviously we wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise for our viewers.”

After Gazette reporter David O’Neill tweeted the TV personality to ask if he would do a stand-up set in Tring, the flamboyant panel show host replied in his trademark Northern accent: “I don’t do stand up. I’m not a stand up. I din’t even know I was in Tring, but it looked nice.”
