Greggs lovers piled into Primark in Newcastle city centre this morning to get their hands on the new pastry themed clothing range which hit the shop today.
The high street bakery and the budget fashion retailer collaborated on an 11-piece fashion range which launched today in 60 Primark stores in the UK, and will be available until stocks last.
T-shirts, tracksuit bottoms, bucket hats, underwear, socks and sliders all feature in the line, with prices ranging from £7 to £16.
A massive queue formed on Northumberland Street before 8am with fans eager not to miss out on the collaboration between the famous store and much loved bakery.
Many clutched food and drink from Greggs, of which there are 29 in Newcastle, as they waited for the doors to open.
Greggs superfans, including eight-year-old Oscar, queued up outside Primark this morning so they could buy clothes from the fashion retailer’s collaboration with Greggs

Shoppers started queuing before 8am today, in a bid to get their hands on the highly-anticipated fashion collaboration
Bakery branded t-shirts, hats, jogging bottoms, sweatshirts and trainers flew off the shelves of the cut price clothing giant, with fears the shop may run out.
Teenage warehouse operative Edward Finn had undertaken a mammoth journey from his home town of Worcester to get his hands on a t-shirt emblazoned with a vegan sausage roll.
The 18-year-old said: ‘I made a 12 hour journey in a storm to get here yesterday. It was that important to me to get a Greggs t-shirt.
‘The Primark in Worcester isn’t selling the range, so I decided to come to Newcastle.
‘I absolutely love Greggs. I do nightshifts and it’s one of the few places that is open when I finish at about 6am.
The line of shoppers went all the way down the street, with people excited to buy Greggs branded loungewear, hats, and underwear

‘I look forward to getting something hot to eat all through my shift. I love the vegan sausage rolls.
‘I got to Primark early this morning as I was worried the range might run out.
‘I will be wearing my new t-shirt to work with pride.’
Engineer Liam Turnbull, of Gateshead, was also in the queue early this morning.
Liam Turnbull (33) picked up two t-shirts from the highly-anticipated collaboration between Greggs and Primark
He bought himself two t-shirts, one with a vegan sausage roll on it and the other showcasing the bakery’s logo and blue branding.
The 33-year-old said: ‘This collaboration is fantastic for the North East.
‘I think it’s a really interesting idea and I wanted to be here early because I was worried about missing out.
‘I am into designer clothes, and wouldn’t usually shop at Primark, but I was happy to make an exception for a couple of Greggs t-shirts.
‘I was very eager to get my hands on them. The vegan sausage roll is iconic.’
