UK ‘Ken Doll’ in court at Christmas after trip abroad for ‘unmissable TV op’

The bloke nicknamed Hull's "Human Ken Doll" has allegedly breached a foreign travel ban because he wanted to pick up some “lucrative” television work.

Jimmy Featherstone is barred from going abroad due to an eight-week prison sentence he served las year for failing to comply with the requirements of a community order.

It was during a November 2021 hearing that he was found guilty of two counts of breaching a molestation order and two counts of harassment relating to events on May 25, 2020.

And having failed to follow those orders, he was slapped with an eight-week prison sentence.

However, Featherstone has found himself in hot water once again after fleeing the country for an “opportunity that he simply could not miss”, but was quickly deterred – once arriving abroad to an undisclosed location – because he was called and told he “needed to be home” by the probation service.

The Hull-native's trip ended after just four days, and he was later seen in court admitting breaching his post-custodial sentence supervision, Hull Live reports.

The probation service told Hull magistrates that Featherstone began his post-sentence supervision on January 10 but he travelled abroad in September when the trip had not been authorised by the head of the service.

Rebecca Shears, mitigating at Hull Magistrates' Court this week, said: "The defendant realises that it was a silly decision to travel abroad.

“He has been distressed at the prospect of a return to custody. It would definitely result in the loss of his employment. He works full-time at a dentist.”

He admitted to pocketing £800 during his time away, but as he had “not committed any further offences” since being released from prison, he was only fined £230 for the trip – as long as he paid it in full within 28 days.

Featherstone declined to make any comment on the case after the hearing at Hull Magistrates' Court.
