The other day I got to go FROW on the intu Eldon Square’s Spring/Summer Fashion Show! The shows are in association with Hello! Magazine and are taking place in intu shopping centres across the country.

The beautiful Anna Foster hosted the one in Newcastle, with assistance from TOWIE superstar Amy Childs, who hit the catwalk showcasing her new range at Dorothy Perkins.

Here’s some highlights from the show!

Cheryl Cole also hit the catwalk, well almost… Her outfit was modelled, as part of the a new charity campaign at intu Eldon Square. Celebrities have donated their outfits, which are being auctioned off to raise money for the charity, Centrepoint.
