You can't fault the idea - tourist destination hires local girl to help promote the town. So it is we welcome Lisa Scott-Lee, new face of Rhyl. And Prestatyn.

Ex-Steps singer Scott-Lee, who is starring in her own reality series, Totally Scott-Lee, said Rhyl and nearby Prestatyn were "happening" places.

Well, you can't argue with that claim, apart perhaps from the word "happening."

But it's a tricky position to be in - you once attracted hundreds of thousands and were known as a by-word for glamour and fun; now, you've got to struggle with crumbling facades, a faint smell of sewage and a desperate failure to attract any sort of paying, quality business. If you're in that position, perhaps agreeing to do an advert for a seaside town might just help.

This picture appears in the BBC News story with the words "Tourism chiefs say Rhyl has improved in recent years."
