The youngsters, who came to school in their onesies and pyjamas, enjoyed a special assembly presented as a show by The Laughter Specialists, actors who go into hospitals and special schools to cheer the children up.

School spokesman Jess Horrocks said: “The Laughter Specialists’ show was nonsensical and absolutely hilarious. They invited pupils up onto the stage and showed everyone what they do to make children laugh.

“We didn’t tell the children that Pudsey was coming and they were beyond excited, they couldn’t believe that Pudsey had come to their school.”
