Pensioner Harold Moss enjoyed the red carpet treatment at the premiere of a film in which he appeared alongside Gary Barlow, Ronan Keating and Kelly Brook.

Harold worked as an extra in Keith Lemon: The Movie, a comedy created by Leigh Francis, the man behind Bo Selecta and Celebrity Juice.

The 77-year-old attended the premiere in Leicester Square on Monday evening after his daughter Amanda surprised him with a pair of tickets.

“We got the chance to walk down the red carpet and people were cheering,” he said. “It was fantastic. Most of the big stars were there.

“I play Keith Lemon’s butler. We watched the film and I saw the scene with me in. When the credits came on my name was up on the screen.”

The Belfast Synagogue member later joined revellers at the after-party at the nearby Planet Hollywood bar, where he was reacquainted with Ms Brook.

“Kelly was very friendly,” said Mr Moss. “I got to know her and Leigh quite well during the filming. This film was very different to any of the others I have done.”

Mr Moss has regularly appeared as an extra in films and TV series filmed in his home city, which has a burgeoning reputation as a venue for production companies.
