HE'S packed his trunk and said goodbye to the circus....

The circus has arrived in Cleethorpes for its seventh year in a row, but the ringmaster went missing en-route from Mablethorpe.
Clown Alex Morley said: "We were in Mablethorpe last week. We all set off and came to Cleethorpes but could not find him.
"Now we are looking for a new ringmaster. All that people have to do is turn up. We shall have an interview and see what experience they have and give them a go."
Rusty said: "At first we were worried why he had not turned up and then we heard he had joined another circus.
"In our circus we are all good at multi-tasking. We have about five weeks left of the season so just need someone for a short while.
"This is our seventh time in Cleethorpes. It is becoming a tradition. We put on a new show each time and are looking forward to entertaining the audiences."
The circus was voted the best circus in Great Britain in two separate polls last year.
This year, the circus is introducing Albert with his unique freestyle balancing routine and has come fresh from Russia's Got Talent.
He is joined by Vladislav, formerly of The Moscow State Circus, and muscle man Kristian is back with his aerial straps routine.
There are many of the familiar acts, including Disney characters Goofy and Mickey and a feature from Toy Story.
Sponge Bob Square Pants is also thrilling scores of children at the circus which is in the field next to Pennell's garden centre, in Humberston Road.
