Bit on the Side Again blog

Some exciting news people!

As I’m sure some of you may know (though, some of you may not) I am Assistant Producing for the digital team on Channel 5′s, Big Brother this summer, and what fun it’s been so far. Firstly, the team are awesome. I’ve worked in other departments on the BB production in the past during the Channel 4 days, and had equal amounts of fun, but working with the digital guys… ah, the atmosphere seems a lot more ‘chilled’! It’s probably because we’re all geeks, and geeks are kool!

Anyway, that’s not the exciting news. Aside from the fact that I get to watch Big Brother ALL day long, clip together catchy highlight clips for the website as well as hang about on twitter and facebook all day, I’ve also managed to plant my face on Big Brothers Bit On The Side for an occasional appearance during their digital chat at the end of the show. Yep! It’s flippin’ fantastic!

I had my first spot of live talking the other day, and I’ll be honest with you, it was s**t scary. I wasn’t sure I gave it my all, but hopefully, since this was my first ever LIVE appearance on TV, I’ll get used to it with practice. So by the end of the summer, I could be the notorious ‘digital guy’ that everyone knows about, who knows? In the mean time, I’ll leave you with this little image brandishing my skills in action!

P.s. See, told you I looked scared – look at the scared face of mine •CRINGE*
