Big Deal at Swindon Car Shop
There was a manic mix of motors and mayhem in Swindon this afternoon - thanks to Noel Edmonds.
The Deal or No Deal star was here to host 'Noel's Car Shop Party' at the UK's biggest indoor car showroom, which has just opened in Drake's Way.
The wheel deal:
Noel Edmonds and Mr Blobby in a party
mood at the Swindon Car Shop
An action-packed day of family fun and frolics that also included the appearance of another TV favourite - Mr Blobby.
The former ‘Crinkly Bottom Wobbler’ there to entertain the crowds by taking on the Car Shop's own mascot, 'Baggy' in a special challenge sumo match.
A play fight Mr Blobby lost on a technical knockout!
Winners on the day, though, included Swindon resident Tony Prinzi who drove away in a £7,000 Vauxhall Corsa after winning a car price quiz hosted by Noel and fellow special guest, TV Driven's Mike Brewer.
A significant sum was also raised for the Children's Unit at the Great Western Hospital, the adopted charity of the Swindon Car Shop this year.
Thanks very much!:
