A reality TV star was the VIP guest at the launch night of a new Leeds bar.

The Only Way is Essex cast member Lauren Pope, who is also a professional DJ, took to the decks at East 59th in Victoria Gate.

She was invited to the opening of the Manhattan-style venue, and performed alongside beatboxers Bloxed Beatbox and Ink Girls on Thursday night.

Big-name DJs from all over the world will appear at the restaurant and bar's weekly music nights, including Graham Sahara and Willie Graff, who DJ at famous Ibiza club Pacha.

The venue is owned by D&D, who also run Crafthouse and Angelica at Trinity Leeds and adjacent Japanese restaurant Issho.
