Lost Voice Guy is continuing his winning streak as he is set to embark on a UK tour.

The Britain’s Got Talent winner – whose real name is Lee Ridley – will bring his award-winning comedy nationwide from next year.

The 36-date tour will begin in Barnsley on February 2 and will include BGT semi-finalist Jonny Awsum as a supporting act.

Ridley is the first stand-up comedian to use a communication aid.
