Are Frank and Mick friends?

At first glance, this seems like an odd pairing for a double bill: Frank being a 62-year-old boxer from London and Mick a 73-year-old comic from Liverpool.

However the pair did both star together in a 2014 charity night, also held in Lancashire so perhaps this was the start of a budding friendship?

Bruno held An Evening With... at the Dunkenhalgh Hotel in Clayton-le-Moors, featuring Mick, for Cancer Research UK and Help for Heroes.

What has the venue said about the event?

On Facebook, the Lostock Hall Conservative Club wrote: "One of our countries favourite ever Boxers is coming to Lostock Hall, alongside one of countries finest ever comedy legends, an afternoon not to be missed…."
