Coronation Street star Michelle Collins – better known as Rovers Return landlady Stella Price – opened the latest addition to Berkhamsted’s High Street.

Angels Boutique owners Karen and Warner Stephens called in their pal to make the opening on Thursday a star-studded event.

They met the soap star around four years ago and have stayed in touch ever since.

The shop, offering French and Italian-style ladies clothing, handbags and jewellery, is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm.

After the shop opening Michelle – who shot to fame as Cindy Beale in EastEnders – visited the Hospice of St Francis where she chatted to staff and patients.
