Adam Hills – a regular on shows such as Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Mock the Week and presenter of Channel 4’s The Last Leg – paid for show-goers to go to Let’s Go bowling centre at Pottington.

Hundreds took him up on his offer and flooded through the doors of the Braunton Road complex at around 10pm.

Adam, who only asked for donations towards his Movember effort, spent more than an hour greeting customers and signing autographs while posing for photos.

“We were surprised to see so many flock through the door – there must have been roughly 200 people as booked 120 on the bowling and there were others talking to Adam and singing in the karaoke booths.

“It’s definitely the busiest Monday night we’ve ever had – we’re usually getting ready to close up after 10pm.”
