With just over a week to go until the event, Merseyside Police is getting ready to ‘lock up’ celebrities as well as business leaders as part of an event to raise thousands of pounds for the Princes Trust.

Samantha Giles (Bernice Blackstock from Emmerdale), actor Paul Barber (Only Fools and Horses, the Full Monty and One Night in Istanbul) and Philip Olivier who’s appeared in Brookside, Hollyoaks and Benidorm, amongst other things, will all be spending time in the cells in a bid to raise as much money as possible for the Trust.

The trio will be joining business leaders from across Merseyside and will be subject to the full custody experience from being transported in a police van, fingerprinted and questioned to locked up in the custody suite.

The more money that everyone raises for the Trust, the longer people will stay in the cells.

The event is taking place on Friday, 28 November.

Inspector Steve Richardson said: “This promises to be a fantastic event where people will raise money for a great cause.

“We’re delighted that Samantha, Paul and Philip have agreed to take part.  They all have close ties to Merseyside and hopefully they will all enjoy the experience whilst, at the same time, helping us to reach our fundraising target.

“There are still four cells left and if anyone wants to take part they can register their interest or get more information by visiting the Merseyside police website or e- mailing teamruby@merseyside.police.uk.  You can also follow all the action on Merseyside Police’s twitter account, using the hashtag, #LU4G.”
