A few weeks ago I requested application forms for a couple of TV game shows. I was just goofing around really, though I do really want to go on The Weakest Link, and I am planning to make it onto Mastermind sometime before I die.
So forms for The Weakest Link and the new series of Supermarket Sweep came rolling in, but as yet I haven’t completed them. But today, completely out of the blue I got a call from the producer of Sudo-Q – a daytime TV game show that combines the mathematical elements of Sudoku, with some very easy trivia questions. It’s not the most thrilling show out there, but it is hosted by Eammon Holmes whose absent-minded genius does tend to elevate it to respectable daytime viewing.
Anyway, I’ve scored myself an audition. Or rather I should say ‘we’ have scored ‘ourselves’ an audition, because it’s a two-player game, which means I had to nominate a partner. So my chum Goooooders very kindly agreed to be my sidekick for a bit of a laugh.
Let’s hope we do well enough at our audition to make it onto the show. What a hoot!
