The TV star sported a colourful tie, blue jeans and a bright pink shirt as he filmed what looked to be a new advert for Cross Country Trains on Monday, September 2.

A large film crew, including a full team of make-up artists, were also spotted on platform two on Station Approach, just off the B1101.

In an exclusive set of images, Simon can be seen smiling as he filmed a scene which saw him arriving at the Fenland station.
