What would the lads down the Bird i’th Hand say, Johnny?

The St Helens funnyman is pictured with his latest co-star, legendary glamour queen Joan Collins.

It’s a far cry from some of his usual haunts in St Helens, where Johnny, real name Michael Pennington, enjoys nipping into his favourite watering holes for a pint with the locals.

But he was clearly delighted to be performing alongside the former Dynasty star in the new series of the hit TV comedy Benidorm.

Vegas, who is set to return after quitting the show a number of years ago, will resume his role at pub quiz maestro The Oracle, while Collins will return as hotel resort boss Crystal Hennesy-Vas.

She later tweeted this snap of pair together on set.

Joan Tweeted: “On the set of @BenidormTweets with the hilarious @JohnnyVegasReal”

With avid Tweeter Vegas adding: “I do SO hope my school career advisor is reading this! Fabulous day on set with the legendary @joancollinsobe.”
