Long forgotten in Britain but famous to just about all Germans, Freddie Frinton lives on in Germany's most famous tv sketch, shown every New Year's Eve: Dinner for One. People will soon be able to pay homage to the man all year round when a museum, dedicated to his work, opens in Bremerhaven. The Expat Show talks to members of his family and those behind the idea for a museum. We also visit the football club of his birthplace: Grimsby, meet those behind its fan magazine, Cod Almighty, and also hear how locals feel about comedian and prankster Sacha Baron Cohen's film bearing the town's name.
