IT definitely will not be the case on no likey, no lighty when Bolton welcomes one of its favourite comic sons to launch the festive season.

Home-grown comedian and presenter Paddy McGuinness will be giving residents a seasonal treat when he switches on the town’s Christmas lights on November 16.

He is the latest addition to a long line of celebrities who pushed the trigger in Victoria Square – including Jason Kenny, Danny Jones, Vernon Kay and Amir Khan.

Paddy, who was born in Farnworth and attended Mount St Joseph school, supports Bolton Wanderers and still lives in the North West with his wife Christine and their three children.

He said: “I’m delighted to be switching on the lights in Bolton, my home town this year.

“I’ve always been a proud Boltonian and I’ve been a part of the fantastic crowds that turn out every year. This time though I’ll be the one up there switching on the lights!”

The local lad who shot to fame in Phoenix Nights and Max and Paddy’s Road to Nowhere is the popular presenter of ITV’s Take Me Out as well as enjoying success on shows like The Keith and Paddy Picture Show and stand-up comedy tours.

The Christmas lights switch on will start at 5pm on November 16, with Paddy counting down to the big switch-on at 7pm, sponsored by the Market Place shopping centre.

Leader of Bolton Council, Councillor Cliff Morris, added: “We’re really pleased to be able to welcome Paddy to Bolton’s Christmas Lights switch-on and thrilled that he has agreed to flick the switch for us this year.

“Paddy is a local lad who has really put Bolton on the map and we’re really pleased that he still comes back regularly to visit.

“Starting with the lights switch-on, we will have something for all the family in the run up to Christmas, including plenty of festive entertainment and attractions in the town centre.”

For all the build-up and action at Bolton’s Christmas light switch-on, follow the council on Twitter @Boltoncouncil and get involved using #BoltonXmasLights.

I've often wondered what he did. I've seen him on the telly box,sniffing the Peter Kay leftovers,but he's a bit of a puzzle to me.

If you can make it through more than about 5 minutes of this shite, you've got more patience than me.

It's excruciating.....

As I've not managed to endure the full show, I can only assume it involves bottles of piss raining down on the stage at some point.

I actually went to see him at the Albert Hall in Bolton many years ago and to be honest he was very funny but when he went to playing the arena's the show wasn't anywhere near as funny.
