FORMER Horncastle Grammar School pupil and star of Channel 4 comedy Peep Show, The Smoking Room and Blessed, Robert Webb came back to his roots last week.

The well-known comedian returned to his old school to help year 10, 11, and 12 students with their exam revision on sit coms - a subject he knows well after appearing in three himself.

He was accompanied by author Julie Patrick who has written a book on sit coms.

Following his visit to the school Robert took the opportunity to visit Smarties Bar in Woodhall Spa - the village in which he grew up. Photo: John Aron.

He was fortunate enough to be snapped by our celebrity paparazzo for Big Night Out and was picked for a free drink.
