AS a twenty-something singleton (yes, there are some of us still around), I wasn’t massively looking forward to Valentine’s Day.
That was until the owners of Whisky River invited me and my friend Helen along to its Made in Chelsea-themed event.
This ever-so-chic cocktail bar on the banks of the River Wear is the perfect venue to meet two TV stars that are used to the finer things in life.
Unlike their on-screen persona, which could be best described as arrogant, Spencer Matthews and Hugo Taylor were perfect gentleman.
It was their first time in Durham, but they reckon they could drink people from the North East under the table.
I doubt that’s true, but as posh totty goes, they were a good laugh.
