It's not a big deal to get on TV anymore is it, surely? Literally can do it thanks to reality shows and things like XF, BGT, etc.

There was a good thread on this topic in the Tv forum several months ago OP.

My ex won the 'Mountain Of Prizes' at the end of Vernon Kay's Gameshow Marathon (it was a viewer phone in competition) and Lionel Blair came to our house to film the prizes arriving on a huge lorry including a speedboat!

In fact, my ex was filmed standing in said speedboat, with a captain's hat on no less, with Lionel shouting "wagon's roll....." and then jumping on a trampoline at the end, again with Lionel, with a glass of champagne.

I was totally mortified by it all and only appeared VERY briefly :o

I was on Panorama in January talking about the bad experience I've had with the Work Programme. I think it's still available on Iplayer if anyone wants to see my fabulous TV debut :D

A mate was an extra in Braveheart - fourth hairy person on the left, ten rows back listening to Mel give a speech :)

I have been on tv and have a relative who is an actor who has been on tv and in films

Not TV, but I'm on the radio once a month.

Oh, and I was an extra in a music video in the 80s

:D This has really tickled me, I can just imagine Lionel in all his cheesy glory and you cringing away. You poor soul!

The closest I've got is a friend of mine drunkenly banging on a restaurant window when people were filming for The Real Holiday Show, which was a short-lived programme on Channel 4.
The guy then made a comment about 'the local wildlife'. She got the utter pee ripped out her in school the next day!

I used to know Suzi Perry when she was a teenager.

a very good friend has been in Dr Who, Torchwood, Casualty, Stella, Pobol y Cwm a number of times (a welsh soap) tv adverts and quite a few other shows which I cant remember, He does a lot of extra work, some small speaking parts. :)

An uncle of mine has been in a few films, a number of tv programmes, he is a comedian and is very well known around his area (been around for ages)

I took part in a demo and was on the front page of loads of papers.
Does that count?:D

My brother was in a long running documentary during his medical training at Guys. One of my cousins had a 'blink and you'd miss it' part in 'The Wiz' as a child actress but it starred Michael Jackson and Diana Ross so that was exciting. Another cousin is in a band so he's on TV occasionally. My neighbours took part in one of Laurence Llewelyn Bowen's make-over programmes and were royally stitched up but got a nice sofa bed out of it which softened the embarrassment.

Sorry but this is really funny purely for the excellent way you told it & for the fact I can understand how mortified you must have felt, I would've been the exact same. :o

I need to stop thinking about it otherwise I'll laugh all night!:D
Thanks for cheering me up! :)

I think I've seen that, very interesting watching how other peoples lives change so much over the years.

livingdeadgirl 30-05-2013 21:45

I was in a documentary about the actor Jamie Bell when the cameras came to our school and filmed his life. I was only shown for a second or 2 though (and I'm quite glad of this fact).

I've watched those programmes, always interested to see how things have changed for the people involved.

Hi :)

Which one are you?
I've seen them all.:)

IzzyS 30-05-2013 22:20

Yes, I appeared on an episode of T4 during an interview with the Backstreet Boys. I wasn't there in person but I recorded a video of me asking my question to them and they picked it and played the video before the group answered.
