Gok Wan, presenter of the highly entertaining and popular TV programme ‘How to look good naked’ was at The Pier over the weekend. Gok was with family and friends celebrating a 40th birthday party on board a barge that sailed from the Ha’penny Pier. Gok arrived ahead of the event, word had already got around Harwich so the bar was full of people wanting his autograph and picture. Gok was more than happy to oblige and spent ages signing autographs. As you can see from the photograph, we have our very own Gok Wan at The Pier in the shape of Chris Haseman so when you next visit do ask for his autograph!
