A Norwich Market stall received a surprise visit from a well-known stand-up comedian this week.

Rhod Gilbert stopped by On The Stall City on Tuesday morning, and posed for a photo with owner Andy Bowles' son Jacob.

The Carmarthen-born funnyman was in the Fine City ahead of his performance at Interlude later that day.

"It caught us a little by surprise," said Mr Bowles.

"He's very nice – a very pleasant guy. He just popped up on the stalls and was having a good look around the market, which was pretty buzzing yesterday in between the rain."

Mr Gilbert had a brief chat with stallholders and bought a Norwich City-themed mug.

"He didn't make any commitments to being a supporter," Mr Bowles joked.
