JULIA FLIES OFF TO UNKNOWN DESTINATION

 

Administrator Julia Goodfellow will be leaving her desk behind on Monday to fly off to an unknown location for a top secret game show which could see her winning the holiday of a lifetime.

 

Along with best friend Jim Jackson, Julia, from the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside, will be heading off to Heathrow Airport first thing Monday morning to meet up with four other couples and the presenters of the BBC production ‘Come Fly Away With Me’.

 

“They’re really keeping us in the dark about where we’re going and what we’ll be doing when we get there,” said Julia, of St Catherine’s Grove, Lincoln.

 

Julia, Jim and some other friends had originally applied to appear on the BBC’s popular Saturday night show ‘Friends Like These’ but the volume of applications meant they weren’t able to get on the programme.

 

“I got a call from a BBC researcher a couple of weeks later asking if we’d be interested in taking part in something a bit different,” added Julia, who works in the .

 

“All I know is that we’re going on Monday  for four days, and we might win this fantastic holiday, but whether we do or not it will be a great experience.

 

“As I don’t know if we’ll be heading for the sun or the snow I don’t know whether to pack my bikini or my woolies!”

 

‘Come Fly With Me’ will be screened on BBC2 later this year.
