Educating Essex, Joey Essex was given a grand tour of the town by Mr. Christmas aka Andy Park.
Andy said, “It was a great day. He came to Melksham and we had a wander around, went for a coffee, went to the bank – no-one recognised him though as he had a big bobble hat on!
“It was for his show Educating Joey Essex, the Christmas special ‘What You Sleighing’ and Joey wanted to find out the meaning of Christmas. We had a Christmas dinner, pulled crackers, exchanged presents and watched the Queen’s speech on DVD. He brought me jumper and I had a bauble specially made by Whitehall Garden Centre with Joey Essex on it.
“He thought I was wacky but he said it was good fun and if it made me happy then why shouldn’t I celebrate Christmas day every day.”
