This is a question That's me on TV!

Hotdog asks: Ever been on TV? I once managed to "accidentally" knock Ant (but not Dec) over live on the box.

We last asked this in 2004, but we know you've sabotaged more telly since then

The Priory
I went with my brother and a couple of his mates who'd got tickets to be on The Priory. Turning up at a warehouse in the Caledonian Road area, we got in quickly to find beers sat on a table for the audience, which was nice. Would have been nicer if we'd got there earlier and more than two each, sniff.

Working in telly, i had some idea of where the camera's were most likely to be, and chose a good seat. My brother and chums thought they'd be best off down the front for their 15nanoseconds of fame. They weren't seen at all.

I however, had clearly chosen the bestest seat ever. Because i was sat on the end of a row at roughly chest height, it was the prefect spot to put George Best, a guest on the show. So i made way for Mr. Best, and got to shake one of Britains greatest footballers hands. Then in another segment a woman in a red top and i were asked to make way for Jamie and Zoe, woman in red top promptly stood in front of me, so constantly tried to peer around her, looking like i was some loon on ecstacy/medication.

After the studio was stopped for a commercial break, Zoe asked me and a few others to think who we thought were overrated. I was the third person to be asked by Zoe. However, I'm most proud of my thumbs up when George was introduced. Pure class. www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKYdRxNMGH0

I used to work in the basement at BBC TV Centre, and knew all the various ways to get into the studios. For awhile in the late 90's i was often seen in the audience at Jools Hollands show, after sneaking in.
