Ronnie Corbett - Ronnie Corbett And His Grandson Hit The Red Carpet Together!

Ronnie Corbett has long spoken highly of his grandson, Tom, in the past and yesterday, for the first time, he was accompanied by the youngster – who shares an uncanny resemblance to his grandfather – as the two were out in London.

Attending the opening night of the new play A Chorus of Disapproval, the 81-year-old British comedy legend Ronnie stood in the shadows of his towering, 23-year-old grandson as they rubbed shoulders with some of London’s most glamorous celebs and socialites.

In the past, the pair have accompanied each other to Edinburgh fringe festival together to watch up and coming comedians, with Tom inheriting his grandfather’s love for comedy. As well as this, the public first became aware of Tom and his grandfather’s loving attitude towards him when in 2000 Ronnie phoned a BBC Radio 4 phone-in discussion being held with former education secretary David Blunkett in order for him to discuss his grandson's battle with dyslexia.

The duo were attending the opening night of A Chorus of Disapproval at the Harold Pinter Theatre last night, a show that features fellow funny-man and friend of Corbett Rob Brydon as well as Ashley Jensen and former Eastenders actor Nigel Harman. The show, by Alan Ayckbourn, is directed by Trevor Nunn and begins it’s run on the West End next week.
