Ben Mitchell, PA
Anime and gaming fans have been dressing up as their favourite characters at the largest anime convention in the country.
Thousands got into character for the two-day Sheffield Anime and Gaming Con, South Yorkshire, which has featured stars from the cosplay and gaming world, including voice actors, performers and singers.
Enthusiasts also had a chance to play the latest video gaming releases, as well as retro classics, and take part in talent shows and lip sync battles, at the event at the Mercure Hotel.
Lorraine Kelly has recalled an unsettling moment when Russell Brand called her a “sl*t” while appearing on a TV talk show together. The TV presenter, 63, and 48-year-old comedian were both guests on BBC One’s The Graham Norton Show when the incident took place back in 2007. Showing a clip of it on ITV daytime show Lorraine on Wednesday, the Scottish star admitted “that’s uncomfortable to watch that now.”
