COMEDIAN David Mitchell enjoyed a laugh with his fans as he signed copies of his new autobiography.

The Peep Show star was at Waterstones in Broad Street, Oxford, yesterday to sign copies of Back Story. Before turning up, the actor, writer and comedian who went to Abingdon School tweeted: “Just off to Oxford for book signing in Waterstones at 1pm. It’s my home town so I’m hoping at least my mum will turn up.”

George Scott, 18, who is studying French and linguistics at Keble College, was one of the fans who joined the queue at the signing.

Mr Scott said: “David Mitchell was very funny and approachable. I really enjoyed meeting him."
