Dudley's Lenny Henry is going on tour in the Midlands

Lenny Henry is one of Britain's best-loved personalities and for much of his career the only, Black British comedian to achieve continued acceptance on mainstream telly.

That was helped, in part, by ITV's children's show TISWAS where he developed some of those celebrity impressions of David Bellamy and newsreader Sir Trevor McDonald.

The Dudley born comedian is back in the Midlands ahead of a new tour and he dropped in to ITV Central to have a chat with Sam and Bob.
