This year’s Skegness illuminations big switch on certainly had the X Factor, with former contest Ray Quinn on hand to perform the honour!
The reality TV show favourite and Dancing on Ice star was in town on Saturday night.
Crowds gathered to watch the singer flick the switch and enjoy a host of entertainment.
The event was organised by the Skegness, East Coast & Wolds Hospitality Association (SECWHA) working in partnership with East Lindsey District Council, Butlins, The Royal Hotel, The Hildreds Centre, Skegness and District Chamber of Commerce and Skegness Town Council.
SECWHA chairman Nigel Tett said: “At the end of the event the crowd was as big as I’ve ever seen it. Ray Quinn did a fantastic job as our celebrity and our thanks must go to illuminations organiser Tammy Jones for a very well organised event.”
