Doncaster war hero Ben Parkinson has met up with the stars after paying a visit to the Open All Hours set.

The Afghanistan veteran, the most badly injured soldier to survive the conflict, dropped in at Arkwright’s shop in Lister Avenue, Balby this morning.

Ben met up with actors including comedian Johnny Vegas who posed for photos alongside the war hero.

It comes just days after Ben met up with world renowned jockey Frankie Dettori

The show, also starring Sir David Jason, Lynda Baron and Tim Healy, is being filmed at the converted Beautique hairdressing salon over the next fortnight.

Security is tight on the set and crowd barriers have been brought in to help stop members of the public disrupting the film shoot.
