Shoppers got the chance to meet one of the country's most loved celebrities when Stephen Fry visited the city this weekend.

The multi-talented comedian, writer and television presenter signed copies of his new book and chatted with delighted members of the public at Jarrold on Saturday.

His latest title accompanies his current BBC series - Stephen Fry in America, in which he visits each of the American states in a black taxi cab.

Stephen Fry grew up in the village of Booton, near Reepham, and briefly attended Cawston Primary School. The Kingdom star also attended Norwich City College before finding fame with the Cambridge Footlights.

He has a second home in West Bilney, near King's Lynn.
