One of the stars of TV show Shameless was on hand to open a new business venture in Scarborough.
Alice Barry, who plays Lillian Tyler, cut the ribbon at Scarborough Weight Loss Management Clinic in Victoria Road.
Hypnotist Ken Webster said: “Alice is a friend of mine and it was great to have her there. She certainly drew some people in, with lots of people wanting to come in and meet her.
“It’s going really well at the clinic so far. We’ve had some fantastic results with people losing 1.5 to 2.5 inches within 20 minutes.”
