TV star and comedian Les Dennis has been forced to deny once more that he is responsible for the graffiti of his name around Norwich.

Back in 2018, pictures began circulating online of bizarre tributes to the former Family Fortunes presenter in locations across the city, which saw his name scrawled on walls in places such as St Benedict’s Street and Fishergate.

He shared the pictures at the time and proclaimed a “low-rent Banksy” was to blame for the unusual graffiti and that he had nothing to do with it.

Mr Dennis, who previously owned a holiday home on the north Norfolk coast, has now been forced to deny his involvement yet again after he was tweeted a photo of it which said “Really @Les Dennis?”

Mr Dennis tweeted: “Again? I haven’t been defying lockdown and travelling to Norwich.”
