The one and only Chesney Hawkes insists he is famous enough to open a Christmas ice-rink in Hastings.
The one-hit wonder singer faced a backlash from residents in East Sussex who claimed his fame faded a long time ago.
Many were expecting Madness singer Suggs instead.
Chesney defended his celebrity status on Twitter and said he was looking forward to coming to Hastings, in a long tweet entitled The Battle of Hastings:
Chesney is due to appear in Hastings on December 6th.
