PEPPA Pig, the animated children's television favourite, is coming to St Albans on Saturday.

The hugely-popular character will be leaving behind Mummy Pig, Daddy Pig and George to find some muddy puddles to enjoy between 11am and 3pm at the Maltings shopping centre.

Said centre manager Phil Corrigan: "It is brilliant that such a huge television personality will be visiting the centre on such a fun-packed day."

Saturday will also see the launch of Smaltings, a new free children's club at the centre, and a face painter will transform little ones into butterflies, lions and tigers on the day at no charge.
