Lydia Bright, Ricky Norwood and Josie Gibson were frightfully thrilled at the new London Dungeon last night (27.02.13).
The TV stars turned out for the VIP launch of the scary spot's all-new establishment - located along the British capital's embankment, near the London Eye - and were left white-knuckled as they took a tour through London's dark history and encountered creepy characters such as Jack the Ripper and Sweeney Todd.
Though she's known for her trim figure, former 'The Only Way is Essex' beauty Lydia, 22, gorged on delectable treats such as steak and ale pie in Mrs. Lovett's pie shop and the star felt right at home.
She said: "There are loads of pie shops where I'm from, you might not think so but pie and mash is my absolute favourite so I'm loving Mrs. Lovett's shop!"
TV and film legend Brian Blessed also joined in the fun, revelling in the sights and lending his unmistakable voice to a 3D projection of Henry VIII.
He said: "The London Dungeon is just wonderful, it brings history to life and makes it fun and accessible. I'm delighted that people young and old will be enjoying my performance as Henry VIII every single day."
'EastEnders' star Ricky - who plays Fatboy - also found a home away from home in the Ten Bells bar, an old fashioned East End-style pub not dissimilar from Walford's iconic Queen Vic.
The actor joined former 'X Factor' contestants The Risk - who are made up of Ashford Campbell, Charlie Healy, Andy Merry and Derry Mensah - for an East End knees-up as the band serenaded a star-studded crowd which also included comedian Vic Reeves and 'Splash!' champion Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards.
The new London Dungeon opens to the public on March 1.
