An Arbroath woman has become the proud recipient of a signed guitar by pop superstars One Direction after winning a competition she did not know she had been signed up for.

Erin Mowatt is now no doubt the envy of young girls all over the world after she scooped the Freshman acoustic guitar as part of a raffle at Abbey Music shop just before the Christmas period.

The Courier reported that Erin was not even aware she was in with the chance of winning the 1D memorabilia as her father Alan had entered her without her knowledge, providing the perfect shock gift.

Erin told the news source: "I'm going to see the band in February with my friends so I'm really looking forward to that. Their music just makes me feel happy and I get excited when they come on the radio or TV. It's surreal."

The guitar was put in the raffle by Abbey Music owner Jim Addison who was given the signed instrument by Sean Kelly, boss of Freshman Guitars that supplies 1D's Niall and Liam with the guitars.

One Direction are due to hit the UK in February for a huge UK tour.
