Gloucestershire-based Giffords Circus is currently on its summer tour across the country and everyone's favourite clown, Tweedy, has been making some famous friends along the way.

Its annual Caravan Crawl — devised by Circus Sauce executive chef, Ols Halas — sees all of the performers and cast host a 15-minute circus with themed entertainment, food and refreshments at their caravan, with this year's event featuring none other than actor and comedian, Russell Brand.

Tweedy managed to convince Brand to star in his Scottish-themed performance, which featured a castle and some Highland Games-inspired entertainment, but not before creating a Mission: Impossible style Instagram reel which Brand shared with his followers.
