I’ll be watching out for new episodes of Mastermind over the coming weeks after bagging tickets to be in the audience.
What a delight it was to be a part of it, albeit at a slight distance and in the semi darkness. And what a thrill to mentally count down through the various questions, making a mental (and silent) note of the ones I got right and then calculating how well I did compared to the contestants.
I remember one person answering questions on Ewan McGregor as her specialist subject. I’m proud to say I got nine correct – not bad going to say I hadn’t researched it.
So that’s another thing crossed off the bucket list. It’s a little like being a film extra but without the long hours. (I’ll be in the new series of Cold Feet, too, as an extra, playing a businessman at a conference. That’s as long as I made the edit. We’ll see).
