IT MAY not have been plain sailing but nobody can deny that comedian Vinny Cadman has had an extraordinarily interesting life.

And what makes his story better is the fact that he has beaten an alcohol addiction and homelessness to get his life back on track.

He is now re-launching his career as part of a comedy double act and will be featured in a BBC 2 documentary next week detailing his ups and downs.

Many who get into the vicious cycle of addiction and homelessness do not get back out of it, so credit should be given to Vinny, who has beaten the odds.
