BBC TV star Carol Smillie will host a 50th anniversary Beatles party at a Halifax hotel.

The renowned television persona will join The Charity Dreamgirls at Holdsworth House on October 21, from 2pm to 6pm, for a Beatles-themed afternoon tea.

Carol, a mother of three, first became successful on television as a hostess on the Wheel of Fortune before she was snapped up to present The Travel Show on BBC2 and then BBC 1’s Holiday, Summer Holiday and Holiday Swaps.

She was later chosen as the face of The National Lottery.

Beatles fans will be given the chance to relive the days of the 64’ tour, where the band performed in Bradford and later used the hotel in Holmfield as a secret getaway.

During the afternoon tea, the rooms that the band stayed in will be open to guests and there is a chance to take a selfie on the bed that Paul McCartney slept on.

The fundraising event will showcase the band’s music history and will include live music and VIP treatment for the guests - with everyone receiving a goody bag.

Tickets cost £25.
