COMEDIAN Chris Ramsey has donated part of his Strictly Come Dancing wardrobe to help raise funds for his hometown theatre.

A pair of dancing shoes, signed by the star, will be raffled off in aid of the Customs House in South Shields.

Ramsey reached the semi-finals of the competition with his professional partner, Karen Hauer, despite never having danced a step before in his life.

Ray Spencer, from the Customs House, said: “We know there are plenty of fans who would love to get their hands on Chris ‘Twinkle Toes’ Ramsey’s dancing shoes, so why not enter, give to a great cause and hopefully you’ll waltz off with a piece of magical Strictly memorabilia.”

People can enter the raffle at the Customs House box office, either in person or by calling 0191-454-1234.
