Tap-dancing TV presenter Lionel Blair charmed residents at a Purley care home during National Care Home Open Day.

The lovable entertainer was at Sunrise of Purley in Russell Hill Road on Friday, where about 50 guests joined the 118 residents for a barbecue and live music from big band singer Barry Stevens.

Not to be outdone, the evergreen Blair joined Stevens for a couple of numbers, before enjoying a dance with resident Freda Frost.
