Make Me Rich Meeting Number One

I’m on the train back from Manchester after my first meeting with the production crew of Make Me Rich (the new series I’m doing for ITV1). It’s quite fun to meet the team, and quite daunting to know there’s a lot riding on it.

I think they may be a little tired though. I tend to get a little carried away when talking about MoneySaving and the philosophy behind it, very evangelical. It’s important to me that the team understands what it’s all about. Just hope I didn’t go on a bit too much.

We’re still looking for candidates. It’s not an easy job, as like all TV Make Me Rich is formatted and therefore the candidates have to fit into the format we’re looking for. These things tend to have quite rigid structures and it’s not just finding people I can help, but people to make each programme distinctive, different and bring up different issues!
