A Love Island star will head to Whitehaven next month.

Michael Griffiths is due to make a special guest appearance at Club 135 on December 14.

Fans will be able to get up close to the TV star for photos at the VIP Christmas event.

Michael, a former fire fighter, starred in the 2019 series of the dating reality show.

The Liverpudlian entered the Love Island villa on day one, and left a week before the final.

Club 135 has already hosted celebrity events with Geordie Shore star Nathan Henry and Love Islander Sam Gowland.

Danielle Lee, who co-owns the club with Mark Johnson, said they are looking forward to hosting more VIP events after rebranding from Roc Bar to Club 135 earlier this year.

"We are ready to get it kick started again," she said.

"We hope to put on more events that create a little buzz around the town. It’s always nice to see local businesses pushing the boundaries and bringing new things to Whitehaven and we hope to be a part of that."

She added that she was "over the moon" that half of the tickets had been sold in under 24 hours.

Tickets for the event, which takes place from 7pm until 10pm, are £10, and can be purchased from Club 135 or from www.skiddle.com.

Entry includes meeting Michael Griffiths, a photo opportunity with him and champagne on arrival.

Under 18s are welcome at the event and will be given identifiable wrist bands on arrival.
