The announcement comes after KentOnline recently revealed a Haribo sweet shop will fill a spot in the centre's £90m expansion.

Customers will be able to sample sweet treats produced in the UK and exclusive products imported from Haribo factories across the world at the new store - which will be the first to open in the county and the south east of England.

Outlet bosses say once the extension is complete this autumn, 50 new brands will be added to the centre, creating 500 new jobs.

YO! Sushi, Pret A Manger, Zwilling, Paul Costelloe and Lost Sheep Coffee has already opened in the newly-constructed site.

The Garden of England-themed play area is already in public use, having cost shopping centre bosses £400,000.

Scores of people spent hours queuing for the opening of Krispy Kreme last month, with the first dozen being given a gift bag with various prizes, including branded caps and jackets.
