What to watch

Woman (UK) - - Contents -

Af­ter tak­ing part in the 2002 se­ries of Big Brother, ali­son forged a ca­reer in TV, ap­pear­ing on shows such as This Morn­ing and Loose Women. Here, she tells us about her lat­est gig as the ref­eree in the BBC1 quiz, The Time It Takes.

How are you en­joy­ing your role as ref­eree? i’m com­ing to work and hav­ing so much fun, to the point where it’s not re­ally work. ac­tu­ally, that’s not true be­cause it is quite tir­ing! but do­ing all the games, it’s a dream. Hon­estly, i’m en­joy­ing it so much.

Has your pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence as a hol­i­day rep helped? it’s weird, be­cause i did think, ‘This is what i used to do’. i used to love mak­ing up games as a child and then i took that into the rep­ping, too. and it re­minded me of when i went into Big Brother as well. When we got bored, we used to play silly games.

were you a game show fan be­fore this? i love game shows! i’m rub­bish at them, mind. it’s the ques­tion as­pect i like, but on this show, i don’t get to lis­ten be­cause i’m al­ways tim­ing some­body and wait­ing to blow my whis­tle. if i take my eye off the ball, i’ll for­get to blow my whis­tle.

Could you per­suade any a-list celebs to guest on the show? you never know. maybe with a sec­ond se­ries we might be able to get Tom cruise or Will Smith. i’ll give them a call!
