My debut appearance on This Morning
I remember watching This Morning back in the early 90s, in my student digs with my best friend JoJo! We had a broken TV we’d found in our cellar and half of the picture was always purple…
So I must say, I was pretty excited when ITV called last week having seen my feature in Best magazine, and invited me on the show! I was hoping to be in the studio with Eamonn and Ruth but the plans changed last minute to a Skype call. Unfortunately the sound wasn’t great – I’ll have to put a little clip-on microphone on my prize wishlist!
Here’s the video of my interview if you missed it…
There’s always such a lot of last-minute preparation that goes into a short segment like this. Multiple research phone calls and video interviews – and I spent most of yesterday afternoon rushing around taking photos and videos of prizes I have at home. I even had to go through old unboxing videos to send clips – none of which were used in the show!
I was told the questions Eamonn and Ruth would ask me in advance, but they threw a few unexpected curveballs too. And of course Eamonn couldn’t resist poking fun at my name (yes of course it’s real!)
I didn’t get the chance to mention SuperLucky or my Lucky Learners group though – never mind, maybe they’ll invite me back to the studio in future to do a special feature!
