Wanted: Celebrity for Stars in their Aisles charity event

17:39 03 February 2014

Celebrity judges are needed for a charity “Stars in their Aisles” event in a Romford Tesco.

Staff posing as celebrities at the Roneo Corner branch will be getting local schoolchildren to come dressed as pop stars. However, a real celeb is needed to ensure the panel is star-studded for the event which will raise money for Diabetes UK.

Tesco Community Champion, Lesley Dunn, said: “My ideal celeb would be Chesney Hawkes as I love him but really we are aiming for someone from something like The Only Way Is Essex.

“We have emailed all the cast of Eastenders but all we got back was a picture of [character] Jane Beale which was not even signed and was without a letter.”

A date has not yet been set and is flexible to the celebrity’s availability but must be before February 17.

Lesley, who promises to dress as Suzi Quatro, said: “As it’s for a charity, we couldn’t offer them any payment. But we could provide them with a nice meal, continuous Costa Coffee and good company.”

Any willing celebs can email landjchallenges@hotmail.co.uk or ring Lesley on 07708 455 433.
