Coronation star Mikey North was the special guest at the official opening of the new B&Q store in Northampton.

The actor appeared at a family fun day on Saturday where he tested out his DIY skills against B&Q Northampton's store team.

Mikey said: “I really enjoyed helping to celebrate the launch of the new B&Q Northampton store. I had a laugh testing myself on the DIY challenges and didn’t do as badly as I’d expected! I even got some advice from them to make my own home improvement projects easier.”

Darren Letherbarrow, unit manager at B&Q Northampton, said: “We loved welcoming customers to our revamped store and showing off our improved look to Northampton’s residents. The day was enjoyed by all and Mikey surprised us all in the DIY challenge – he was great!"
