Entertainer and prankster Lee Marshall, 30, joined truckers on the M20 near Folkestone, Kent, as they remained stuck in Operation Stack on Monday night. Stripped to a pair of women’s running shorts and wearing sunglasses and a winter hat, Mr Marshall, aka DiscoBoy, blared songs from a speaker on a trolley. He got stranded lorry drivers clapping and dancing outside their vehicles as his portable disco, complete with flashing lights, created a party atmosphere in the Roundhill Tunnels.

He urged other drivers to “give me a horn, give me a horn” and to “put your hands up”, before adding: “When I say Operation, you say Stack.”

Some passing motorists beeped their horns in appreciation of the stunt, encouraged by a waving Mr Marshall, who had #DiscoBoy scrawled on his chest.

Mr Marshall, from Canterbury, said: “There were some people were a bit bemused by it all. But once they realised I wasn’t a threat a couple got out and started dancing and doing some video.

“I’ve been doing these types of discos for a while. I’ve done them at shopping centres, outside police stations and even Downing Street.

“Some people on my Facebook page suggested I go down to Operation Stack. I hadn’t done one for a while, so I thought why not.”
