Fans of the cult American TV show Storage Hunters had the opportunity to meet one of its biggest stars in person.

Jesse McClure visited Accrington on Saturday, September 27 to launch the market hall’s brand new e-commerce website.

The presenter also challenged Accrington shoppers to a Storage Hunters style auction in the Market Hall to kick off the day’s events.

Bidders went head to head with Jesse to predict the value of various items available to buy inside the market hall.

Proceeds from the auction went to the Mayor’s charity fund.

The American star then swapped the bidding war for football boots as he headed to the Crown Ground to take on the crossbar challenge for Accrington Stanley.

Football fan Jesse announced that Accrington Stanley was one of his favourite UK teams during a live appearance on Sky Sports' Soccer AM earlier this year.

As well as holding a VIP meet and greet before the match, Jesse also had a Q&A session after the game and a Storage Hunters-style auction in the Crown pub on Whalley Road.
