The fans I interviewed and spoke to had an incredible time, food and drinks were provided to all the fans whilst they waited to meet the stars, and there were lots of activities and prize give-aways taking place where you could win signed merchandise. It was so lovely to interview all of the cast and get up close and personal to them, and they all told me that they loved Hull and had a cushty weekend in Yorkshire.”
