- Ricky Tomlinson bares his soulful vocals for a crack at the charts

THE ROYLE FAMILY'S resident couch potato Jim Royle, aka Ricky Tomlinson, is to get off his backside and record a CD.

Tomlinson takes on his Jim Royle persona for Singing, My Arse!, which will feature a selection of his favourite songs.

Some of Britain's best-loved funnymen will feature on the disc. Ken Dodd, Jimmy Cricket and Norman Wisdom will play callers to a radio station requesting Tomlinson's tracks.

"This CD sounds hilarious in the studio," said Ricky's agent Les Bather. "Ricky hopes it will chart."

Singing, My Arse! is slated for release in September. Bottoms Up!
