Frances Bishop finished third in the TV show in 2016, and has since seen success in the world of business. Her project The Pud Store sells designer children’s clothes at a discounted price, and has gained popularity through its Newark and Doncaster stores.

Frances has now opened her third branch in Mansfield’s Four Seasons shopping centre.

She said: “The event was bonkers - we did about three what our other openings did and everyone seemed to love the concept.”
