Mr Cary said: "It was when we went to the funeral of comedian Ian Sludge Lees last year, and so many of us were there, that I thought we needed a big get-together.

"I think it will really be a wonderful night. There are about 230 people going so far, and it's not the stars from today, it's all the older stars.

"I think it will be super. We'll all get together for a drink, and a chat about old times.

"Molineux is going to screen some pictures on the TVs from the old days too which will be nice.

"It's going to be superb, a cracking night."
