Caution! This article is 13 years old, and our opinions may have changed.

Our very own Andy Golpys was mixing with the stars as celebrities flocked to the launch of Manchester's Parisian-inspired Spa 303 in the Hilton Hotel on Deansgate. Here at Shape, we produced all Brand Identity, Graphic Design and Photography, Alongside Designing and Developing the brand new Spa303 website: [www.spa303.co.uk](http://www.spa303.co.uk)

See if you can spot Andy here in the selection of piccies, beautifully snapped by our lovely India Hobson, who is doing a brilliant job for us here in the studio as our main photographer.

Coronation Street stars Samia Smith, Alison King, Charlie Condou, Jimmy Harkishin, Big Brother's Stuart Pilkington, Hollyoaks' Sarah Jayne Dunn and a host of other famous faces enjoyed a night of pampering at the stunning new spa launched by former Harrods and Harvey Nichols hair and beauty expert Tina Robinson.

Also appearing was the BBC's newest talent spotter, Armand Beasley, star of this autumn's must-see reality programme, Britain's Hottest Couple.

Vajazzles and the male equivalent p-jazzles were available on the night...... if you don't know what that is yet.... then google it....... and the answer is no, Andy wasn't brave enough to get his done!

Alison King, who plays Carla Connor in Corrie, said she loves having beauty treatments: "But I never get chance to do this a lot. I've been on nights for about four nights, so I'm just haggard!

"I've just had a nice hand massage. I must book in. Apparently here they can do three things at once: facial, pedicure and a massage all in an hour.

"I'm having a massage, at last, on Saturday. I've not had one for months, so I'm looking forward to that.

Tina Robinson said: "It was a night for us to showcase the very best in beauty and relaxation treatments with our exclusive products. Everyone had a great time. And we had great fun doing everything from pedicures to p-jazzles! Tina, originally from Manchester, has more than 26 years experience in the beauty business, including working for brands such as Vidal Sassoon, Regis, Aveda and Urban Retreat at Harrods and Harvey Nichols.

Boasting a team of ten beauty experts, Spa 303 has three luxury beauty rooms and offers a range of face and body treatments, as well as waxing, nails, massages and tanning, for both men and women.
