About this deal

Movie director Lee Howard told the Post: “We’re excited Jimmy will be in the film… it’s fantastic that he’s managed to fit us into his schedule. St Helens-born Johnny is well known for his appearances in the hit ITV comedy drama Benidorm and also for popping up in adverts for tea brand PG Tips with a stuffed puppet monkey! Also on the recent show was Stevie Jaxx and Paula Martine, alongside young performers from their Popstarz Academy.

There were articles in the North Wales Daily Post and in the Rhyl Journal about the entertainer’s role in the film. His addition to the cast is another major coup for the people behind Womble the movie, as it also includes top comedian Jimmy, 69, who will play himself as a talent contest judge. It will feature songs from the Beautiful South’s former lead singer Briana Corrigan and American Pie star Thomas Nicholas as well as a string of original songs written by songwriters especially for the movie. He said he found the atmosphere around the production team very warm and enthusiastic. In fact, Jimmy had only planned to be in North Wales for the morning, but did not have any difficulty staying into the early evening as he enjoyed the excitement his visit had generated! He interviewed cast members from the film during the second half of the performance and a special preview of Womble was shown.The film is about a man called Aloysius Rupert Womble (played by actor and comedian Tom), who is in his 30s and living with Asperger’s Syndrome in a typical seaside resort town. But the famous veteran entertainer insists he will not be like Simon Cowell in The X Factor, telling readers of the Preston-based Lancashire Evening Post in his monthly column he will be a “dream maker, not a dream breaker”. Famous entertainer Jimmy’s cameo role will be filmed on location in North Wales in June and he was recently involved in a photo shoot alongside the central character Womble, played by actor Tom Spencer.

Jimmy is playing himself as a talent contest judge in the movie, which will also feature the comedy actor Johnny Vegas in a cameo role – his scene will be shot later in the summer. The famous entertainer, 69, plays himself as a talent contest judge in the movie, which is about a man living with a condition called Asperger’s Syndrome. Aloysius’s dream is to become a stand-up comedian. The film is a week-long snapshot of his life as he goes through the trials of living with a cognitive condition while dealing with the injustices forced upon him by society and parts of his community.

His scene was shot on location at the Central Beach Club in Prestatyn. The filming took most of a day to complete and was under the direction of Lee Howard of Best Picture Films. The 18 March edition of the North Wales Daily Post newspaper states that well-known entertainer Jimmy “will bring his unique brand of comedy to the climax of the film”, which is being set in and round Prestatyn. Jimmy added: “There was also a great contribution from dancer Stevie Jaxx who performed an energetic and agile routine, all the more remarkable as in the lead-up to the show he was bed-laden with flu.The famous veteran entertainer teamed up at the Pavilion Theatrein Rhyl with people from the North Wales-based independent film company who last year shot Womble. Children and adults affected by Asperger’s Syndrome have difficulty with social interactions and exhibit a restricted range of interests and/or repetitive behaviours. Jimmy said: “I was very grateful to Anne (Marshall, director) and the Popstars organisation for hosting this activity and I am very excited about returning to the theatre later in the year for a show with the Popstars on Saturday the 11th of July.” Over the seven-day period he prepares for the biggest night of his life – a talent show in his local pub. Womble,one of the biggest independent movies to be made in North Wales, is being shot over the summer and will be set for release in 2016.
