Mums’ favourite Shane Richie ‘charmed’ hundreds of people when he called in to a Sheffield shopping centre.
The actor – who plays Alfie Moon in soap EastEnders – had a special date with Sandra Hicks from Waterthorpe, who had won an online competition to meet him first at Crystal Peaks shopping centre on Mother’s Day.
Groups also won the chance to have their photograph taken with the former Butlins Red Coat entertainer, and he drew the first prize to win a range of Mother’s Day goodies from the Waterthorpe shopping centre.
A Crystal Peaks spokesman said hundreds of people had turned out for the event on Sunday.
He said: “It was a storming success.
“Everybody had a fantastic time.
“Shane posed for lots of photographs and charmed absolutely everyone as he always does.
“It was a big hit.”
