‘After 10 years I decided that it was time to take on the next exciting challenge in my career, while also being able to dedicate more time to performing as Jimmy Giggle live in concert, a part of the job I love so much,’ he said at the time.
Jimmy is a proud father to three young sons – Lenny and twins, Vinny and Mack – with wife Tori Rees.
He appeared on last year’s season of Dancing With The Stars, but had to quit when his then-seven-week-old son suffered complications during a procedure to correct his tongue-tie.
A tongue-tie occurs when the string of tissue under the tongue stops it from moving well.
