The bus runs from Eastbourne over the Downs, past the picturesque Cuckmere Haven, through Seaford and Newhaven and on to Brighton.

Mr Coles, who was in the band The Communards in the 80s and appeared on Strictly Come Dancing, has previously taken to social media to talk about the area since moving to Sussex.

He said, “First decision since moving: I am going to pronounce Polegate as Poolgut with immense confidence and see if it catches on.”
