I’m not responsible for Les Dennis graffiti in Norwich – says Les Dennis

Comedian Les Dennis has denied being behind a series of graffiti messages bearing his name which has sprung up in Norwich.

The entertainer tweeted “it wasn’t me” after his name was spotted in brightly-coloured spray-paint on buildings.

The 65-year-old Liverpool-born entertainer has presented the Family Fortunes gameshow and acted in Coronation Street.

He added his denial to a retweeted message from ITV Anglia journalist Rob Setchell which said: “REVEALED: #Norwich appears to be the canvas for bizarre graffiti tributes to @LesDennis. Several locations given the Les treatment. Has anyone else spotted one? Does anyone know who is behind the ‘SurreaLesm’ movement?”

Passers-by said on Twitter that they had spotted the graffiti on Fishergate and in St Benedict’s Street.
