Cheeky television chappy Olly Murs took over a well known pub.

For three days in November the Kings Oak was run by Olly Murs and a crew from ITV who were recording Christmas show 'Happy Hour'.

The born and bred Essex lad welcomed Sir Tom Jones and Emma Willis to the Waltham Abbey pub along with some other famous guests yet to be made public.

Epping resident and presenter of 'The Chase' Bradley Walsh acted as landlord, with the pub's owner and landlady Linzi Pollard happy to pass over the reins.

The show is being aired on ITV1 on December 15 at 9pm.
