A popular actor and television presenter headed to a local pub to film an ITV Lorraine segment for Thank You Day.

Ross Kemp raised a glass to volunteers at The Feathers in Church Street, Rickmansworth, on behalf of the Royal Voluntary Service.

Cheers for Volunteers is a celebration of all the hard work volunteers do to help the community.

Victoria Keen, the pub’s general manager, said: “Ross is so lovely.

“His pub in EastEnders was called the Queen Vic pub, and because my name’s Victoria, I said to him ‘come on Ross have a picture with the real Queen Vic.”

Kemp arrived just before 9am before the segment went out live on TV to which he poured a pint, held it up and said: “Cheers to the volunteers.”

The pub was asked to host the event before ITV came on board, and Victoria made around 30 cups of tea for guests this morning that also included Girl Guides.

Victoria added: “Ross stayed for over an hour having pictures with everyone. He was so chatty with everyone and professional.”

The celebration is tying in with the country’s third annual Thank You Day, which is being held on July 2.
