My experience…

Having applied only 2 months before, it was disheartening to see the same researchers at my audition that I had for my Holiday Jetset audition (which a friend and I failed to get on the previous year). Thinking I was doomed, and literally having to guess every one of the 30 multiple-choice questions on the general knowledge worksheet, I resigned myself to another disappointment. However, I was called in last for my piece-to-camera and told that they actually remembered me from Jetset, but I was ‘too loud’ for the show, and for the delicate Eamon Holmes apparently. They asked me to audition there and then not only for Dale Winton’s ‘In it to Win it’ but for Channel 4’s ‘Coach Trip’.

Sadly, it appears I didn’t get through with the latter, but found myself being pampered 4-star stylee in London for the National Lottery quiz! Two nights in a top hotel, sirloin steak dinner, full English brekkie and a chance to win up to £100,000.
