A gaming centre in Yate Shopping Centre is hosting a very special guest at their official opening this weekend.

Shipleys, based on North Walk near Boots, have revealed that they will be hosting Celebrity Big Brother winner and Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas at the store for the opening at 12.00pm on Saturday, November 24.

The 34-year-old actor will be cutting the ribbon at midday, but there will be a lot of different things going on at the shop throughout the day.

The celebrations will actually begin on Friday, November 23 with customers able to enjoy a Grand Opening Marathon Package.

This will include a free £100 cash raffle at 11.00am, 13.00pm and 16.00pm throughout the Friday and the Saturday as well as a lot more special offers.

Shipleys will be open seven days a week from 8.30am-9.30pm from Monday to Saturday and then 10.00am-18.00pm on Sundays.
