Susy Atkins is an award-winning writer, wine expert and TV regular and she has recently been filming on the Grand Pier in Weston.

Saturday Kitchen filmed a wine tasting session in the venue’s Edwardian-style tea room, which looks across the Bristol Channel.

The pier’s general manager, Paul Charalambous, said: “It was wonderful to play host to Susy Atkins and the crew of Saturday Kitchen.

“It’s always exciting to show Weston’s amazing attractions and coastline to the wider world through TV.

“Having such a well-known programme filmed at the pier was great fun for our customers and staff alike.”

Film tourism is estimated to boost the economy by £3million a year and the pier is now working alongside Visit Somerset to encourage more film and TV producers to choose Weston as a filming destination.

The episode featuring the pier was aired on Saturday and is available on BBC iPlayer.
