WIRRAL actress Suzanne Collins is to host a fashion show at a shopping centre in her home town.

The former Brookside star is taking time out from her theatre schedule and filming a feature film in Liverpool, to compère the glittering fashion extravaganza at Pyramids Shopping Centre, Birkenhead on March 29 and 30.

The event, organised by Wirral-based Frame Modelling and Casting Agency, will see male, female and child models take part in 10 shows.

Derek Millar, Pyramids' commercial director, said: "It's going to be a terrific mix of the latest top styles, live music, celebrity and glamour and we are all looking forward to it."

Suzanne said: "I was born in Liverpool but grew up in Wirral and I think this is a great opportunity to show people they can get the outfits they want without going over the water to Liverpool.

"It's going to be a cracking weekend and a lot of fun.”
