A man from Norfolk who was left paralysed after battling a brain tumour is to appear on a popular TV comedy show. 

Simon Kindleysides, from Blofield, will be performing live on Channel 4's The Last Leg tonight.

He is no stranger to appearing on screen and has previously been a judge on BBC show All Together Now. 

Mr Kindleysides said: "It's an amazing opportunity and a great feeling.

"The programme wants to give a platform to people who often don't get noticed due to their disability.

"A lot of people see the wheelchair before they see me."

The father-of-three was diagnosed with functional neurological disorder and a glioma brain tumour in 2013 leaving him paralysed from the waist down.  

He has since broken multiple world records, run the London Marathon and launched a successful city cafe. 

The 39-year-old was approached by Channel 4 after posting videos of his singing on TikTok. 

He added: "It's just amazing that they've found me.

"I love live TV, it's the best adrenaline rush you can feel."
