The second photo shows Jean Campbell holding our National Television Award for Best Daytime Programme 1997, beating Dale Winton’s ‘Supermarket Sweep’, ‘This Morning’ and ‘The Vanessa Show’. We all had so much fun working on the show and as you can see there are a lot of familiar faces in the team however, special mentions for Steve the washer upper, warm up man, Ray Turner, Orla, Silvana, Merilees and Annalisa, the amazing home economics team and the legendary (at least in Warrington) showbiz agent Dave Warwick (2nd pic, front row, far right)
Who can forget Ainsley’s black sausage show, the food mixer trick which somehow raised a laugh every single time and Sir Terry Wogan’s constant swearing!
Best team ever!
