Popstar Marc Almond performed at Ipswich’s Regent on Saturday and lost his temper with two chatty audience members - we ask people in Ipswich what they thought about his behaviour.

The singer was around 30 minutes into his set when he began shouting and swearing at two women who were sitting in the front row.

The Tainted Love singer had spotted the women chatting while he was performing.

Speaking about his behaviour on Twitter, Mr Almond said: “I think anyone who has been to one of my shows knows how I deal with people who just standing talking loudly at the front, ignoring songs.”

He added: “They also spoil it for other audience members who have come to listen. I’m sorry for the language but they have no respect for me or others.”
