Staff and customers at a Kiveton sweet and sandwich shop had a surprising visit from a well know face today (Friday).
Television presenter Davina McCall walked into Traditionals during a break from Long Lost Family and enjoyed lunch with her film crew.
She spent time chatting with owners Debbie Briggs and Steve Cockburn and regular customers.
Debbie said: “We’d been contacted by the production company and asked if we could provide some lunch for the film crew, so we knew they coming. But we had no idea that Davina was going to be part of it.”
“The rest of the crew came in first for their sandwiches and then she just walked in.”
“Friday can be quite a busy day for us and we had a full shop.”
“People were doing a double take as they walked past the shop.”
“The village spirit really came out. One person came in and said: ‘Alright our Davina,’ which she seem to love.”
“She loved it and said it was a gorgeous little shop.”
Davina spent more than an hour enjoying her lunch and even had time to buy a couple of Christmas presents.
“She bought a couple of stocking fillers. She got some mugs with Lovehearts and Wham bars on,” added Debbie.
