Comedian Davidson turns columnist

Jim Davidson to write weekly column for Torbay's local paper.

Comedian Jim Davidson is to write a weekly column for the Northcliffe Media-owned Herald Express, which covers the Torbay area of the UK.

Davidson is to pen his take on life and past encounters in Torbay life every Wednesday.

The column is said to coincide with the launch of rehearsals of his play, Stand Up And Be Counted, which opens in Torquay, a town in the unitary authority area of Torbay, early next year.

Davidson is quoted as saying: "It certainly makes a change from being on the front pages because of some scandal or other. I'm looking forward to sharing some of my Torquay stories with you all as well as my views on how the world should be run."

However, journalists at Northcliffe Media are understood to be not very happy with Davidson's appointment in the wake of ongoing redundancies at the company.
