Scarlett Mofatt, who started life out on the Gogglebox sofa, has always been a big fan of Blackpool and regularly visits the resort with friends and family. She’s always enjoyed dance competitions at the Winter Gardens too. Scarlett’s management said ‘She’s very excited to be switching on the brightest Christmas lights in the country in a resort famous for great lighting displays”.

The Switch On takes place at St John’s Square on Saturday 30 November with live entertainment from 3pm and the BIG switch on at 4.30pm

There will be some competitions where fans can meet and greet Scarlett before the switch on.

Mike Simmons from the BID Board said  “we are delighted to have Scarlett for our switch on event and it shows the love people have for Blackpool that they want to turn on our lights for what we hope will be one of our busiest Christmas periods ever.”
