An American-style candy store in Great Yarmouth is celebrating the opening of it’s second shop with an appearance from a Walking Dead lookalike UKNegan.

I Just Wanna Candy open their second store in Great Yarmouth on Friday October 27, at 1pm.

And to commemorate the opening, esteemed cosplayer UKNegan will be in attendance, showcasing his spitting image portrayal of regular Negan, who is played by Jeffery Morgan on the AMC show.

While Negan is one of the programme’s main antagonists, UKNegan has been rated one of the top three Negan cosplayers in the world.
