I’ve drawn audience tickets to attend filming in Manchester in August so will treat my friend on the train and we’ll have lunch beforehand as it’s her birthday later that week. Has anyone else been and was it worth it?

My mother used to say that even if you hate it you will have something new to talk about grin I hope you have fun!

Nor me Aggie until I saw a clip at the end of the programme for contestants which I wouldn’t want to be actually. Anyway I went on the website and applied for audience tickets about 3 months ago and here we are - Serendipity!

Oh dear. Am I the only person in the world who finds it really boring?

KatyK Wed 26-Jun-19 19:58:13

No. I do too.

Although it would be exciting to see it filmed. My sister went to be in the audience of Deal or No Deal and loved it.

Lucky you. Sounds exciting Enjoy!
I love Countdown and play along with the contestants but I haven't the courage to apply.

Ha ha, I read the thread title and thought why is there a thread about a supermarket chain?

Countdown, a division of Woolworths and known as the Australian branch of that conglomerate, 'invaded' New Zealand a few years ago and built their supermarkets as near as possible to the existing, NZ owned chain.

They are very much more expensive, so I cannot understand why anyone who has the choice, goes there - but they do.

Elliott, the young current number one seed, is doing really well in the semi-finals this week. We are hoping he wins the series.

annep1 Wed 26-Jun-19 22:11:58

Elliott is fantastic. Cajeput ( never heard of it) and getting that difficult conundrum so quickly today Politburo.

I love it! My family think I'm crazy but so what? My mental arithmetic is so much better than it was in my teens. Rachel Riley is amazing and I hope she keeps going. I'm full of admiration for young Eliot and hope he will emerge as winner on Friday.

I like the 8 out of 10 Cats version grin

Apart from Jimmy Carr's annoying laugh.
