I love TV. It’s one of the few things I can rely on to help me relax. Ever since the kids went to school, I’ve had it on in the background to make the place feel a little less quiet, and it’s taught me a thing or two along the way. If nothing else, it’s helped me to understand just how many fruit loops there are wandering the streets out in society. You just need to see who Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby are interviewing each day to get a real sense of how much weirder you really could be.
What I particularly like, though, is the interaction of the shows. ITV are particularly good at it, whether that’s with tweet’s to the ‘loose ladies’ at lunchtime, or chatting to the nation via Rylan in the hub. They’ve got a really good grasp of how to get the nation talking, and at the same time to get the debate fired up about the big news stories.
Better still, they’re always giving away amazing prizes, which is usually a big fat wad of cash. Failing that, there’s cars, holidays and gadgets up for grabs, if you stick around long enough to see the question on each show. I do that by having it on in the background while I’m doing the housework, and lodge my entry through my phone. If you do miss them though, you can catch up at the EnterCompetitionsOnline.co.uk website in their ITV section:
They religiously update the videos on their site every week to show you the latest questions, even though it’s getting more common for them not to have a question at all:
While I’ve not won anything yet, I’m ever hopeful that my name will appear on the list of winners at ITV.com. I hear you find out via a phone call, so make sure you double check the phone number you type into the entry form!
