Actor Ricky Tomlinson has anonymously donated his famous catchphrase, "My Arse" to a children's charity in Liverpool.
The Royle Family star declined to comment on the donation. However, the charity confirmed the gift would make a "huge difference" to its work. Jan Thomas, director of the charity said: "We are absolutely overwhelmed at Ricky's modesty and generosity.
"The old catchphrases we had been using had become a bit tired. They had been donated by local comedians years ago. I just can't tell you how tickled I am".
