The chances are you have seen Cwmbran couple Mark and Corrine Ward-Jones on the telly. They love being in the audience of the country’s best-loved programmes. Mark feature in yesterday’s post talking about how he was hypnotised by Derren Brown. I was amazed when he told me how many shows they had been to see filmed.
In the last few years they have watched:
Derren Brown “Miracles For Sale” (Mark took part)
Who Wants To Be A Millionaire
Friday Night With Jonathon Ross
Ant & Dec’s Push The Button
Million Pound Drop
Britain’s Got Talent Auditions
Dame Edna’s Spa Treatment
The tickets are always free but the only snag is the best shows usually have a long waiting list.
Mark said: “The researcher from Top Gear called us on a Monday and filming was on Wednesday.”
They had waited over a year for Top Gear to call and even then it was due to other audience members dropping out. A work meeting for Mark clashed with Who Wants to be with a Millionaire but the show were happy to give them tickets to a show one day later.
Mark said: “We were able to swap our Millionaire tickets for another day. When Chris Tarrant came out he told us the previous night someone won £1 million! That was the original show we had tickets for. That was a bit annoying.”
You can apply for free tickets to BBC shows by clicking http://www.bbc.co.uk/showsandtours/tickets/ For other channels simply google but make sure you are only using an official site.
Here are some pics from Mark and Corinne’s travels.
