Hollyoaks actors to hire out dresses worn by the stars

Hollyoaks actors Jennifer Metcalfe, Claire Cooper and ex-castmate Leah Hackett have launched a celebrity dress hire business.

Shoppers can hire or buy designer items once worn by the likes of stars including Cheryl Cole, presenter Tess Daly and Corrie star Kym Marsh at a fraction of the price of a new one.

The business is called the Closet and follows in the footsteps of similar businesses Girl Meets Dress and Lily Allen’s vintage store Lucy in Disguise.

The Liverpool-based business, which does most of its business online, also has two in-house designers for hire.

A percentage of money spent is donated to Manchester’s Christie Hospital.

Hackett told reporters: “These are celebrity dresses which have been worn on the red carpet. If you love dresses you can wear a £1,000 one for £100. No one else will be wearing it and we just enjoy helping people get dressed.”
