We are used to seeing Blackpool born Sophie Sandiford on our television screens making us laugh each week.

But did you know she also works in Debenhams?

Yesterday it was announced the department store went into liquidation after 207 years of business.

To mark today's 'Wild Wednesday', Debenhams are hosting a 70% off clearance sale before closure.

Sophie headed to work today to man the tills as shops re-opened across England, sharing a poignant photo on her social media.

She stood with a colleague at Debenhams as they both held their hands up in the air and wore masks.

She captioned the photo: "We might be going but we are going with a smile #debenhams."

The store remains open both online and in store.
