Celebrity Juice host Keith Lemon and Top Gear and Take Me Out presenter Paddy McGuinness were due to present their live cinema experience including a screening of Dirty Dancing at Knebworth House on Friday, August 16 and Saturday, August 17.

However, the event has now been postponed.

The Knebworth dates are no longer listed on the Keith & Paddy's MovieFest website, although the two events scheduled for Tatton Park, Knutsford, Cheshire, at the end of the month are still going ahead.

In a statement organisers said: "In order to get the best possible show to the audience we have had to postpone MovieFest at Knebworth House and the first shows will be held at Tatton Park, but we very much hope to return to Knebworth House soon."

The Tatton Park dates are Friday, August 30 and Saturday, August 31.

Talking about the comedy and cinema event to this paper last month, Paddy McGuinness said: "It will be a live outdoor cinema experience, and there's a stage show. We're part of the show all the way through.

"We will come out on stage and welcome everyone to the gig.

"We will do a little bit of chat and we'll then open up our video shop that only shows 80s classics.

"Then we watch Dirty Dancing, and at the end of it we come back on with all the dancers and do the big dance number.

"After that we DJ for a hour, playing 80s classics and movie soundtracks."
