Harry Hill finished his run of hugely successful TV Burp signings last night with a 4 hour signing at Waterstone’s Bluewater – meeting hoards of enthusiastic kids and parents. Harry was joined at all 3 signings by Heather from Eastenders (’Ev’) and, of course, The Knitted Character. Harry has had huge queues of around 500 people and sold all the books in the shop at all 3 signings this week. He also spent lots of time talking to all his fans, who really do range from toddlers to grannies and show how wide-ranging the appeal of the show is.
As one punter on Twitter said:
@chasfax: To Harry Hill book signing, great bloke, worth queueing 3 hours to meet, my children nearly as excited as me. Deserving TV star of the week.

The Best of TV Burp continues on Saturday, with the Burp Christmas Special on Boxing Day.
Harry is also up for two awards at the British Comedy Awards this weekend for Best Comedy Personality as well as Best Comedy Programme and is the bookies favourite for both.
Most of the kids at the signings were very relieved to see that the Knitted Character was safe and well after being trapped in the fire in Emmerdale a few weeks ago.
