EX-ENGLAND cricketer and unlikely art buff Phil Tufnell was filming in Morecambe on Tuesday.

Tufnell popped into the Midland Hotel for BBC1 programme The One Show.

Tuffers was there to view the hotel’s famous Eric Gill artwork, and to be given a tour of the hotel by Midland staff member Brian Jenkins.

“The hotel’s very nice, in the art deco style which I like, very funky,” Tufnell told The Visitor. “It’s the first time I’ve been in Morecambe and it’s amazing that places like this are knocking about.”

The segment will be broadcast later this year.
