TWO former Hollyoaks stars have been lined up to turn on Peterlee’s Christmas lights this week.
Matt Littler and Darren Jeffries, otherwise known as Max and OB from the Channel 4 soap, will be the stars at this year’s east Durham switch-on.
The comedy duo will be at Castle Dene Shopping Centre this Friday when they will officially launch the centre’s festive celebrations.
They will be helping shoppers to be in with a chance of winning a turkey with all the trimmings, as well as an all-inclusive family holiday to Turkey worth £1,500.
The evening, hosted by Sun FM, will be topped of with an amazing LED light show.
The fun kicks off at 4pm, with performances from Shotton Hall Theatre School, as well as street dancers, singers and a steel band.
There will also be Christmas carols from members of Stagecoach Hartlepool theatre arts as well as a performance by female vocalist Karen Kennedy.
