A caterer is celebrating after clinching her sweetest deal yet after appearing on an ITV reality show.

Val Johnson, of Stevenage, provides sweet carts, popcorn machines and candy floss stands to hire for weddings and similar events.

In August she was asked to provide food for a street party being filmed by The Xtra Factor crew to be included in an opening credits sequence. Val spent the day in Russell Square, London, filming with hosts Caroline Flack and Matt Richardson.

Following this, she was asked back to provide 200 tubs of popcorn for the press launch night of The X Factor. Since then her website has seen a surge in online users and she is gaining new customers every week.

She said: “Who would have thought when I started my business back in January that I would be filming for national television just six months later?”
