Nearly 6 years ago i had the most luck to have the opportunity of taking part in a game show i’d admired the most, the bbc’s in it to win it.
i got to spend three days going to glasgow, a city i’d never been to before and be one of the lucky five to put their knowledge to task to try and win some money. recorded for the country to see on a saturday night!
i had the most fabulous three hours with him. there’s so many moments i’ve told friends about but i’ll stick to the ones that made me admire him the most. he genuinely rooted for us, the contestants. he made every effort to read the profiles we’d been asked to fill out and spoke to us to find out so many more anecdotes.
when we were playing the game, he rooted for me so hard being the first person chosen. he joked about how he thought i was bluffing about making guesses to some answers. sat down next to me to make me have a calm and considered think about an answer i was struggling to give. and when it came to my final money winning question, genuine shock when i grinned with joy at knowing the answers before the options were shown.
it’s made me immensely sad to hear that he’s passed away. i’ll always remember the most fabulous time he gave me in that first game show experience.
