But there will be no revolution at this famous Harrogate shop for the new owner is part of its fabric already.

Natalie posted on the shop's Facebook page: "I’m a new business owner, this shop is in my blood as I have been working/managing here for over 12 years, since I left school.

"I can’t wait to start this new journey and I’m honoured to be taking on such an established business that Farrah’s created with a great history behind it.

"Along with my lovely staff, I'm excited to introduce Harrogate Olde Sweet Shop and we welcome you all, familiar and new."
