Michael McIntyre’s The Wheel looking for more Edinburgh contestants for smash-hit BBC show - how to apply
and live on Freeview channel 276
Packed with huge stars, edge-of-your seat jeopardy and big laughs, the smash-hit gameshow’s premise is simple: each week, three contestants hope to answer their way to a cash fortune, guided by seven celebrities who are suitably strapped to the circumference of a dizzying, spinning wheel.
Last November, an Edinburgh nurse bagged a whopping £82,000 on The Wheel.
Oncology nurse Helen made history on the show after she became the first person to win the jackpot after only answering one question correctly.
Then, just a week later, a father of three became the second Edinburgh resident to make history on the gameshow.
Contestant Alan, who works in IT management, became the first person to clear all seven categories from the wheel by himself.
Alan, who showed his prosthetic hand after telling of how he was born without the limb, wowed Michael and the seven celebrity guests by consistently choosing the correct answers.
He bagged a cool £60k for his troubles.
If you fancy trying to emulate the lucky pair, the BBC is now searching for contestants who are ‘confident, fun and outgoing’.
To apply, you must be aged 18 or over and fill out the online application form via the BBC website.
The closing date for applications is April 21, 2023.
