Sue Blower, Montgomery’s Town Crier, was watched by 5.3 million viewers on Christmas night as she took part in the popular game show Blankety Blank.
Sue met six celebrities on the show, as well as the host Bradley Walsh, who was taking a break from Doctor Who to host this one-off special. Sue had to complete a number of phrases and, although she didn’t reach the final round, she came home with the famous Blankety Blank chequebook and pen.
Sue said, “It was a fantastic opportunity both to take part and to represent my home town of Montgomery as its Town Crier. All the celebrities were very friendly and we had a lot of fun.” Anyone who missed the programme on Christmas night can still see it, using one of the catch-up services.
