Mr G's sense of himself as a mini-celebrity was boosted today by an invitation to switch on the Christmas lights at a prestigious midlands address....
The splendid Banbury family will be standing by on the evening of Sunday 2 December as Mr Gnome flicks the switch that will transform their four-bedroomed detached home into a twinkletastic beacon of Christmas luminosity.
Mr Gnome comments: 'Magic and sparkle? I adore them with a passion bordering on the extreme. Let's celebrate the extraordinary importance of this festival with a sequin-encrusted dazzlement of joyful, big-hearted generosity.'
