A TV gameshow winner has used her windfall to invest in a salon in Weston-super-Mare town centre.

Nadia Watson, aged 24, is the proud owner of Lucky Streaks in High Street, which opened on August 1.

Nadia won £25,000 on Channel 4’s Deal Or No Deal in 2013 and was able to realise her dream of owning her own business.

She said: “I was trained at Toni & Guy and then went on to business and technology college and carried on doing qualifications.

“I always wanted to open a hair salon and I went on Deal Or No Deal and got the money to do that.”

There are six fully-qualified hairdressers working at the salon, which offers a full board of treatments.

Nadia said: “We specialise in extensions, although we do everything in hair and beauty.

“We try to keep the salon a calm and relaxing environment, and keep it really retro. We are just a friendly, happy atmosphere and we keep everything at an affordable price.
