Gok Wan visits Norwich for book signing

Hundreds queued up to meet fashion fixer Gok Wan in Norwich

Around 350 people have turned out in Norwich to catch a glimpse of TV fashion stylist Gok Wan.

The fashion fixer has been in the city to sign copies of his autobiography, released on 14 October 2010.

The 36-year-old, who is best known for overseeing dramatic makeovers on his TV series How To Look Good Naked, met fans at Jarrolds in a cardigan and jeans.

It is the first of two city events for the style consultant - he is also hosting a dinner at Carrow Road.

Gok, who weighed 21 stone as a teenager, spoke in Norwich about how he was bullied about his weight and has turned around the experience to his benefit.

"I think anyone who goes through a big traumatic part of their life, it's always going to have an imprint in your brain, in your psyche, in your confidence, so you develop the right tools to overcome it and you grow into a better, stronger person," he said.

The Leicester-born personality last visited Norfolk in April when he met women with fashion dilemmas in Great Yarmouth for TV series Gok's Fashion Fix.
