So early in the morning I contacted Steve Hewlett about sadly not being able to make hist show at the Rhyl Pavilion and asked him if he would like to pop in to my local Coffee Lounge to meet up and do some photos for the Mug World Tour.

He kindly agreed, to meet up and so at 4pm Steve arrive at Relax Coffee Lounge in Rhyl and was accompanied by none other that Simon Cowell! Well sort of, it was the puppet that he uses in his show of Simon Cowell.

I introduced Steve, and Simon, to Ben Green the man behind the Mug World Tour and they talked a little about it and Steve mentioned that he likes to show his support for various things while touring with his show “Thinking Inside The Box“.

Suffice to say, while all this was going on, people who were walking past the Coffee Lounge, were stopping and double taking and a few were saying, “Hang on, isn’t that the guy from Britains Got Talent, it is, oh my God, I’ve got to get a photo!”, Steve was very accommodating  and passers-by sat with him to have their photos taken with him and Simon Cowell.

Steve Hewlett, fresh from his stunning appearance on Britains Got Talent, now embarks on a major theatre tour with his hilarious friends.

From talking hands, to bottles of water, from Arthur Lager to Little ‘Simon Cowell’, Steve and his creations won the hearts of the nation and wowed the judges in the BGT final.

Now Steve and his cast of zany characters, along with international award-winning illusionist Richard Griffin, take a brand new, spectacular show on the road to delight and amaze the whole family.

So as I mentioned earlier Steve popped in for a chat and to have his photo taken with a mug that is doing the rounds around the world with many others having their photo taken with it, such as the amazing Alice Cooper.

What started off as a prank between father and son turned into a World wide fund-raiser for the Renal Department at Glan Clwyd Hospital in North Wales with the mug travelling globally and raising money in all the places it visits and as the mug had “landed” in Relax Coffee Lounge in Rhyl what better opportunity for a great photo opportunity with Simon Cowell, I mean Steve Hewlett as he was in Rhyl for his show at the Pavilion theatre.

I have to say a massive thank you Steve for agreeing to stop by and take the time off from his busy schedule to meet up with me, Ben Green (Mug World Tour) and the staff and owners of Relax Coffee Lounge. Steve is such a great guy and we certainly had a laugh while him and Simon were guests, just hope Simon enjoyed that drink in the mug.

If you get chance to check out Steve and his show, then get to one, he certainly had us all laughing in Relax today and what a really nice guy.

You can follow Steve on Twitter at @ventriloquist29 and follow the Mug World Tour at @MugWorldTour.

Thanks again Steve you’re a star.
