Warwick: My blacked-up fam­ily shock


Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

AC­TOR Warwick Davis was hor­ri­fied to learn his an­ces­tors BLACKED-UP and sang of­fen­sive songs about race.

The Hol­ly­wood star delved into his fam­ily his­tory and found out his rel­a­tives per­formed in crude va­ri­ety shows.

Warwick, 47, said: “My great-great grand­fa­ther, Den­nis Man­ning, was a vi­o­lin­ist in Pell’s Amer­i­can Opera Troupe.

“They per­formed va­ri­ety shows. They pre­sented bawdy, and at times rather de­mean­ing, par­o­dies of African Amer­i­can songs.

“And, un­for­tu­nately, they blacked-up on stage. It was a shock when I dis­cov­ered that side of the troupe’s act and I was slightly hor­ri­fied.”

The Star Wars and Harry Pot­ter ac­tor swapped the big screen for the small screen when he made the shock find, on BBC fact-find­ing show, Who Do You Think You Are? which shows a num­ber of high-pro­file celebs re­search­ing their fam­ily his­tory. THERE are 40 bil­lion bac­te­ria in one gram of shit. BUSTY beauty Bella Thorne donned a sheer top and showed off her kinky nip­ple pierc­ing in a racy Snapchat selfie.

The 19-year-old seems keen to dis­tance her­self from her child-star past and has been post­ing a se­ries of saucy snaps in re­cent weeks.

For­mer Dis­ney star Bella starred in a num­ber of Dis­ney films and TV shows but her sexed-up im­age is a far cry from those days.

Not only did she re­veal her pierced nip in her tight crop top, she also showed off her im­pres­sive abs in her lat­est sul­try so­cial me­dia post.
