Johnny Vegas fans will know the comedian has an artistic streak too.
Carry on Glamping viewers saw the ideal star present their artwork on the show.
In the third episode, Johnny’s last-minute design changes for his Maltese bus drove the craftsman Paulleo to despair.
That included Johnny’s hand-painted tiles for the shower – all 200!
The Miro-inspired tiles were lovingly handcrafted by Johnny himself.
Johnny studied arts and ceramics at Middlesex University.
He still loves art, sculpture and ceramics.
Can you buy it
Johnny Vegas often paints and draws under his real name, Michael Pennington.
However, he currently does not sell any of his artwork.
Instead, fans must book a visit to his glamping campsite.
You can also visit the V&A, where a Johnny teapot was made during a performance at the 1999 Ceramic Millennium Conference in Amsterdam.
It was tossed and assembled in under 60 seconds as part of a challenge.
During the lockdown, Johnny was cleaning up his house and came across a 1989 sketch he had made.
He decided to sell prints of the sketch – by two men sitting on a bench during a crown green bowl match.
The money raised went to Willowbrook Hospice, a cause Johnny cares about.

Johnny recently addressed why an emotional scene from his glamping series would not be shown.
The 50-year-old created a beautiful piece of glass art for his Maltese bus, which he named Patricia after his late mother.
However, the piece broke.
Paulleo, the artisan on the show, shared snaps of the art feature on Twitter.
He wrote: “A large part of the show that had to be left out was this bespoke piece of glass art painted by Johnny himself, but due to the weight we had to have it drilled.
“Unfortunately, cracks appeared shortly afterwards. Geborgen @JohnnyVegasReal # all4 # channel4 #jvglamping #celebpa. ”
Shared the post, Johnny’s PA Beverley Dixon commended Paulleo for his efforts to repair the art after it was damaged in transit.
The actor and comic replied to the chat, telling fans he was “disappointed” with the art that isn’t featured on his show.
He said, “Not being on the show let me down.
“So proud of our @TheWorldofGlass and our proud St. Helen’s legacy of glassmaking.
“Marcin played a blind man, but we honestly thought it couldn’t be saved. The boys bravely saved it. “
He added that the show’s editors cut the scene to “save my tears”.
