Timmy Mallet dumps his hammer for a pallet with art exhibition in Plymouth
TIMMY MALLETT has dropped his mallett and picked up a pallet as the eccentric TV personality turned artist prepares to unveil his latest work in Plymouth.
The former children's TV presenter and pop star was in the city opening a new showroom for Mayflower Stone, in Roborough, a sponsor of his forthcoming art exhibition being held this spring.
The firm manufactures and supplies stone flooring including slate, granite, sandstone, limestone, marble and travertine.
Mallett, best known for his children's TV programme Wackaday, is a keen impressionist painter and will be exhibiting some of his work – including images of Plymouth – at Royal William Yard from March 23 to April 7.

Mallett shot to fame as a radio and then television presenter with his loud shirts, colourful glasses and hammer mascot Pinky Punky.
The pink and yellow mallet even gave Margaret Thatcher a clout during one comedic encounter with ex-prime minister.
Mallett, who topped the pop charts when his band Bombalurina released their version of Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini in 1990, will be talking about his art and his upcoming exhibition in Friday's What's On section in The Herald.
