Actor Anthony Hopkins does Tommy Cooper impression

A world record attempt for the most Tommy Cooper impressionists at one venue will be held in Caerphilly on Saturday.

The "Fez-tival" - named after the entertainer's famous hat - aims to encourage a new generation of comedians and magicians.

It takes place at the castle in the town where the comedian, who died in 1984, was born.

In this clip from 2008, screen legend Sir Anthony Hopkins shows off his own impression of Tommy Cooper at an unveiling of a statue of the performer in Caerphilly.
