Only days after receiving a visit from comedian and marathon man, Eddie Izzard, pupils at a West Kirby school were surprised with another celebrity visitor.

Steve Norman, from Spandau Ballet, dropped into St. Bridget’s C.E. Primary School yesterday ahead of a gig in Liverpool.

A spokesman for the school said the visit was arranged through a parent, who is his manager.

He added: “He came to talk to children about the power of music and also to play the saxophone and get the children inspired.”
