Steve Coogan and James Lance give Brighton's Bedford Tavern an impromptu serenade

The Argus: Steve Coogan and James Lance give Brighton's Bedford Tavern an impromptu serenade Steve Coogan and James Lance give Brighton's Bedford Tavern an impromptu serenade

WITH VIDEO: Alan Partridge was spotted in a Brighton pub – not a pear tree - this Christmas. 

Star Steve Coogan stunned drinkers at the Bedford Tavern in Western Street on Saturday night when he took to the stage for a Christmassy singalong.

Accompanied by Brighton TV actor James Lance, the Hove resident crooned Islands in the Stream by Dolly Parton while the crowd joined in.

This video was shot by one of the crowd, who sent it onto us so more people could enjoy the impromptu performance. 

 

One pub worker said: “It was certainly a surprise when he turned up but it was a lot of fun.

“He seemed to be having a good time, and he was just really normal.”
