Funny man Michael McIntyre brought in the crowds to Jubilee Place today, with hundreds of fans eager to meet the comedian signing copies of his new book.

Fans were queuing for as long as four hours waiting for McIntyre to arrive at 12.30pm.

Those at the back of the 500 plus people were being advised to jump on the DLR and head to Bluewater to try and catch him there, at the next stop of his book signing tour.

Waterstones sold all 300 copies of the books they had in store, with fans in their droves turning up to get their copies of Life and Laughing signed by the comedy star.

McIntyre's autobiography tells of his extraordinary rise to stardom, giving details of his showbiz roots and his journey from selling just one ticket at the Edinburgh Festival to selling half a million tickets on his last tour.
