Bremner on the button!
Impressionist does a star turn for Highworth Christmas lights
Impressionist Rory Bremner did a star turn in Highworth tonight, as thousands turned out to enjoy the switching on of the town's Christmas lights display.
Nelson Mandela, Gordon Brown and Prince Charles were all brilliantly mimicked, as the celebrity entertained a packed crowd in the market square before being counted down to the big moment - which he performed alongside his daughter, Lila.
Can I have my hat back please?

The TV comedian and satirist, who lives nearby, had been invited by Highworth mayor Melanie Duff, much to the delight of everyone who turned out to enjoy the event compered by Heart FM's Jez and Roo.
Entertainment also included music from the Highworth Silver band, fun fair rides and a Santa procession put on by the Round Table.
