X Factor star and Loose Women host Stacey Solomon has been in Great Yarmouth to film scenes for a BBC fundraiser.

Stacey was in the resort on Monday and was seen being filmed on its promenade and at the Beach Hut cafe.

It is thought she was filming for next year’s BBC Sport or Comic Relief appeal and at the cafe she interviewed a woman about mental health issues.

The cafe is owned by couple Alberto Menezes and Sandie Coker, who said: “She was a really lovely lady and said she thought Great Yarmouth was wonderful and had never been before.

“She was exactly like she is on television.”

The couple posed for picture of her visit to their business on their Facebook page and a posted: “A huge thanks to sports/comic relief for choosing our little hut today.

“Great to see the lovely @StaceySolomon and her crew doing a great job for #MentalHealthAwareness.”
