Monty Python legend Michael Palin was in Fakenham today.
Mr Palin helped Fakenam Junior School celebrate the 100th anniversary of its opening and renewed his long-established links with the town.
Mr Palin's grandfather, Dr Edward Palin, was a GP in Fakenham and he attended the original ceremony to open Fakenham Junior School on May 21, 1913.
The recent Bafta Fellowship award winner's father was also born in Fakenham.
He said: 'This such an extraordinary and magnificent occasion.
