'Made in Chelsea' star Jamie Laing and his Candy Kitten sweet shop launch took a disastrous turn last night (August 7th 2012) when a large portion of the stock was scoffed by non-paying guests.
The King's Road 'sexy sweet shop' had an opening party which saw most of the guests (and there were a lot of them) helping themselves to candy not realising that they had to pay for everything that was on display. "We have had over a thousand pounds worth of stock taken", one of the pretty shop assistants known as Candy Kittens told the Mail On Sunday. "Guests assumed the stuff on show was free and so helped themselves". Despite this, entrepreneur Laing - the best friend of Spencer Matthews - still seemed thrilled about his store's reception. "It has been my lifelong dream to set up a sweet shop", he said. "I wanted cute girls selling candy. It is all about making candy cool again! The perfect candy kitten is a cross between Mila Kunis and Kate Hudson, we had 700 girls apply and we have seven already. It is one big family".
He also described the two-floored shop which is selling smoothies, candy and cupcakes among other things as a cross between 'Willy Wonka and Hugh Hefner'.
