EMMERDALE stars Tom Lister and Nick Miles added some extra sparkle to Springfields’ Christmas lights switch-on ceremony on Thursday night.

The actors who play brothers Jimmy and Carl King in the ITV soap, signed autographs and posed for pictures, before flicking the switch in front of hundreds of fans.

Tracy Thomas, communications manager for Springfields Outlet Shopping and Festival Gardens, said: “The evening was a huge success with the rain not deterring visitors.

“Holbeach Brass Band did a fabulous job of getting everyone in the festive mood playing traditional Christmas tunes.

“Tom and Nick were inundated by so many fans wanting autographs and photographs that the switch-on had to be delayed slightly.

“Tom was back this year by popular demand and has already said he would love to get to his hat-trick.

“As a special surprise once the lights were turned on, much to the amazement of visitors, Tom sang several numbers.

“It seems there are no end to his talents and he has a very soulful tone to his voice.”
