LIVERPOOL''S Hope Street Hotel came [...]; TheInsider.

LIVERPOOL''S Hope Street Hotel came to the rescue when producers of an episode of Who Do You Think You Are were searching for the best view of the city.

The BBC was filming the instalment of the series, shown last night, featuring Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall, who was staying at the hotel for the shoot.

When the crew got chatting to hotel staff they mentioned they were trying to find somewhere to get a great panoramic shot of Liverpool to feature in the episode, which explored the Golden Globe-winning actress's Scouse heritage.

Mary Colston, creative director of the hotel, tells Insider: "They asked us for suggestions and we took them up to our sixth floor, which has an incredible view across the whole city.

"The director was so wowed by the view she did her filming there and then."

Sad to say, there was a less fruitful encounter for gorgeous Kim and the equally lovely folk at Puschka restaurant on Rodney Street.

Insider hears the actress landed on their doorstep with her mini entourage after closing time and was directed instead to Chinatown by staff. Our source at the restaurant confirms: "The owner had gone home for the night and the kitchen was already closed so they did what they could to help. But when he came in the next morning he was so disappointed to have missed her, he said he would have opened everything up and made her something himself."
