An independent shop in St Albans became a TV film set yesterday for celebrities of a popular show in Ireland.

The Refill Pantry in London Road welcomed actors and cameras from RTE, the Irish equivalent of BBC1.

The crew was shooting My Best Sustainable Life, a programme showing celebrities trying to live more sustainably.

In the episode they follow Irish model and actress Nadia Forde and her rugby player husband Dominic Day, who live in St Albans with their baby daughter, Wyatt.

Celina Mendoza of The Refill Pantry said: "We were thrilled to have Nadia filming for the show at The Refill Pantry. She really embraced this way of shopping and even bought a bamboo lunch box and a smoothie straw for herself.

"The filming took place while some of our regular customers were shopping, but a great film crew meant that there was little disruption to their shop. It was great to have a local celebrity bringing our shop to a wider audience."
