While filming in Bognor in 1962, Tony Hancock (comedy actor) 1924-1968 stayed at The Royal Norfolk Hotel.

Anthony John "Tony" Hancock (12 May 1924 – 24 June 1968) was an English comedian and actor.Popular during the 1950s and early 1960s, he had a major success with his BBC series Hancock's Half Hour, first on radio from 1954, then on television from 1956, in which he soon formed a strong professional and personal bond with comic actor Sid James. Although Hancock's decision to cease working with James around 1960 disappointed many of his fans at the time, his last BBC series in 1961 contains some of his best remembered work ("The Blood Donor"). After breaking with his scriptwriters Ray Galton and Alan Simpson later that year, his career took a downward course because of his increasing dependence on alcohol.
