Jim Moir, known to most as Vic Reeves, was born in Darlington. ‘I was eight pounds when I was born, healthy and of good cheer; yet the midwife suggested that it might be a good idea for Mum to feed me on Complan… This she did, and I ballooned to a frightening ten stone by the age of three months. I became so corpulent so quickly that my mother was unable to pluck me from my cot and I was eventually prised out with an oar’. Vic is one of the UK’s most popular comedians. His television successes, with Bob Mortimer, have included Vic Reeves’ Big Night Out, The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer, and the long-running surreal panel game Shooting Stars.
