Students locked on to bargains at Merry Hill
5:00pm Monday 7th October 2013 in News
HUNDREDS of excited students headed to Merry Hill on Friday to take advantage of exclusive discounts, watch X Factor finalists perform and meet their favourite Geordie Shore stars.
The Brierley Hill shopping centre stayed open until 10pm for the student lock-in, which gave shoppers plenty of time to pick up a bargain.
After they had shopped 'til they dropped, there was still plenty for the students to do and crowds soon gathered to meet Celebrity Big Brother winner and Geordie Shore star, Charlotte Crosby and her fellow cast member James Tindale.
X Factor fans got a treat as former contestants, Misha B and The Risk took to the stage and chicken lovers had the chance to put their taste buds to the test with the Nando's Wing it for Harry Challenge.
The heat was on as contenders had to eat as many hot wings as they could in three minutes.
Edward Taylor, from Wombourne, was crowned the winner and rewarded with a year's supply of Nando's as he managed to eat 13 spicy wings in the time limit.
The event was a huge success according to Daisy Laverock-Willis, who attended the event in her official capacity - as one of Merry Hill’s official fashion bloggers.
The stylish 20-year-old, from Wordsley, said: “The Merry hill lock-in has been such a great night. I’ve had the chance to meet Misha B and the Geordie Shore guests, as well as picking up some bargains from my favourite high street stores.
“There has been such a buzz around the centre tonight and it was great to see so many students taking advantage of the fantastic discounts on offer from retailers."
