Children’s TV star Victoria Justice caused a stir at a Holloway store last week.

Young fans queued out the door at Argos as the 19-year-old actress, best known for her role as Tori Vega in Nickelodeon’s Victorious, signed autographs.

The former child-star, who has been a Nickelodeon regular on shows such as Zoey 101 and iCarly since the age of 10, is in the UK on a promotional tour. “My trip so far has been amazing. It’s been great to meet so many fans,” she said.

Gary Philpott, store manager said: “Victoria is a huge role model for so many children and it’s an honour to have her visit our Holloway Road store.”
