The entertainer has agreed to take part in a ‘Jail and Bail’ fundraising event for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH). The unlikely duo of the radio host and Colchester businessman James Fisher, an industrial sales director at Fläkt Woods, will be detained by officers in the mock police crackdown on Suffolk and Essex ‘bigwigs’.

They are due to be found guilty by Judge David Goodin at Ipswich Crown Court and punished with an order of each raising £999 for EACH.

Victoria Matthews, Suffolk corporate fundraiser at EACH said: “These ‘criminals’ are brushing with the law all in aid of a good cause and we’re delighted they agreed to back this novel fundraising idea.

“This is our first Jail and Bail event in the area and we still have ‘cells’ to fill, so if you’ve some bad habits that aggravate your colleagues please get involved.”
