TV celebrities Masie Smith and Olivia and Alex Bowen were among VIPS invited to try out the new Hollywood Bowl entertainment complex at Merry Hill.

The new £3.7million venue, which has opened in the former TK Maxx unit at the shopping centre, welcomed guests to try out the 24 bowling lanes and American-style food on offer at a launch event last night (Thursday November 16).

Love Island couple Alex and Olivia were seen competing against each other in the VIP lanes and having a go on the amusement arcades.

Former Eastenders and Strictly star Maisie Smith was also seen putting her bowling skills to the test against her parents and mingling with fans.

Scott Jones, centre manager at Hollywood Bowl Merry Hill, said: “That excitement you get from bowling three strikes in a row is how we’re all feeling at Hollywood Bowl Merry Hill after our exclusive event!

“The atmosphere was electric, full of celebrations, and our star-studded guests immersed themselves in fun.”
