The title of the show refers to the 59-year-old's arrest over alleged sexual allegations, which were subsequently dropped and no further action taken.

Speaking about the series of shows, Jim said: “I have played some of the very best gigs of my career in Scotland – the crowds are like no other in the UK. I can’t believe it’s taken me almost 40 years to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe.

"I had a rough ride for a while last year, but it’s great to be back on stage doing what I love, and the best way of dealing with a nightmare is to talk about it.

"I always seem to find the funny side… And then, for a finale, along came Big Brother. Wait till you hear the inside stories on that!”

Jim will star in 'No Further Action' at Rainy Hall, Assembly Hall from 1 – 24 August 2014 www.edfringe.com
