TV star Les Dennis has denied that he had anything to do with bizarre graffiti tributes to him in Norwich.

Colourful graffiti simply stating ‘Les Dennis’ was scrawled on walls in several parts of Norwich including St Benedicts Street and on The Yoga Room building.

It first started appearing last year but on Thursday Mr Dennis joked on Twitter that “it wasn’t me” after the images were shared again.

Rob Setchell, who works for ITV Anglia, tweeted: “REVEALED: #Norwich appears to be the canvas for bizarre graffiti tributes to @LesDennis. Several locations given the Les treatment. Has anyone else spotted one? Does anyone know who is behind the ‘SurreaLesm’ movement?”

Although the graffiti on St Benedicts Street has since disappeared, the Family Fortunes presenter still has his name sprayed in bright yellow on the side of a building in Fishergate.
