The opposition Liberal Democrats have held a seat in a North Norfolk District Council by-election.
Karen Ward retained Glaven Valley with a majority of 148 over Conservative candidate Andrew Livsey.
The election was called following the resignation in August of former Glaven Valley ward councillor and Lib Dem group leader Andrew Wells.
In a letter to voters ahead of the election Mr Livsey described himself as 'a man of the people' who had appeared on TV shows Blind Date and the Crystal Maze.
Following the result, the council is made up of 31 Conservatives, 16 Liberal Democrats and one independent Conservative.
