Liverpool, United Kingdom, (29th November) – Jodie Lundstram and Debbie O’Toole from the cast of new E4 show, Desperate Scousewives, have been hitting the streets of Liverpool ONE for a spot of retail therapy. Now open later for the Christmas period, Liverpool ONE played host to the style-conscious Liverpool ladies as part of filming for the new reality TV show which started on the 28th of November.

Liverpool ONE has over 160 stores, bars and restaurants, a 14 screen cinema, an indoor adventure golf course and a five-acre park. Stores include high street favourites such as Topshop, John Lewis, Debenhams, Karen Millen, Whistles and Reiss, as well as a range of restaurants, bars and cafes with something to suit everyone’s taste from VIP haunt Palm Sugar Lounge to Jamie’s Italian.

New to Peter’s Lane this Christmas is the new luxury Harvey Nichols Foodmarket Pop Up Shop open until 31st December, and House of Fraser’s first smaller format concept store in the North West. The park plays host to this year’s festivities with a real ice rink, Santa’s Grotto and the Polar Bar, which will be open for winter warming drinks.

Donna Howitt, Marketing Director at Liverpool ONE said: “Liverpool ONE is gearing up for a great Christmas this year, and we’re putting on lots of entertainment throughout the period.  Christmas in the Park is now open on Chavasse Park with lots of festive fun for all the family including our real ice rink, Santa’s Grotto and brand new Polar Bar for post-shopping cocktails. So far we’ve already seen Coleen Rooney and the cast of Desperate Scousewives enjoying festivities – and we’re hoping our shoppers enjoy it too!”
