The 55-year-old manager of Turks Head Functions Rooms, in Honiton, is to perform a pole dancing routine, wearing a mankini.

His act will form part of a pole dancing extravaganza, being organised by cystic fibrosis sufferer Kirstie Mills, for charity.

Kirstie’s fiance, Stuart Tancock, has agreed to join Nick on the night and also perform a pole dancing routine.

The showcase will take place at Turks Head Function Rooms on Saturday, July 24.

Every penny of the £5 ticket price will be donated to the Live Life Then Give Life Foundation, which aims to support those who need life-saving organ transplants and promote the benefits of organ donation.

Kirstie, who is a fitness and pole dancing instructor and owns Extreme Control Pole, based in Honiton and Yeovil, may one day have to have a lung transplant.

“Having known many people with cystic fibrosis to die while waiting to have a transplant, I support the work of the Live Life Then Give Life Foundation,” said Kirstie.

“I have also seen the drastic, life-changing benefits given to those who receive organ transplants.

Tickets for the extravaganza are on sale now at Turks Head Lodge (formerly Honiton Motel).
