Storage Hunters star Jesse makes a bid for the slopes!
Jesse McClure, standout star of the hit Dave TV show Storage Hunters, took to the indoor snow slopes at Chill Factore.
Instantly recognisable with his trademark sideburns and shades, the Storage Hunters star is visiting the UK for a week with his father.
Jesse will be the special celebrity guest at Accrington Food and Drink Festival this Saturday, June 6th. But with some time on his hands he was keen to visit a few of the region’s top attractions, including Chill Factore and the nearby Trafford Centre, where he proved a big hit with fans, signing autographs and posing for selfies.
Hailing from California, Jesse is more used to surfboards and skateboards than snowboards, but he has done a little on the white stuff and was thrilled to have one of Chill Factore’s new Snowboarding Level 3 Refiner sessions with personal instructor Vicky.
“It’s been a while since I was on a snowboard so it was great to have Vicky there to help me out,” said Jesse, who will make the first of two guest appearances on the new series of Storage Hunters UK next Tuesday on Dave at 8pm.
“Chill Factore is an awesome place… I never expected to find a genuine snow slope in the middle of England in June!”
Fans who missed Jesse can catch up with him this Saturday at Accrington Food and Drink Festival, running from 9am to 4pm in the heart of Accrington. As well as mixing with the crowds at the free-to-attend festival, he will take part in a live cookery demonstration with celebrity chef Richard Fox at 2pm.
Bigger and better than ever before, the Food Festival has a huge range of attractions, including more than 50 stalls, activities for kids, live cookery demonstrations and a Continental Market. Because it falls on June 6th – the anniversary of D-Day – there will also be heritage events including an exciting WWII skirmish re-enactment at 1pm.
