TV presenter Andi Peters and his ‘wheel of cash’ were welcomed to Gloucester with open arms today.
The 43-year-old nineties icon, known for his work for Top of the Pops and appearing in the BBC Broom Cupboard with Edd the Duck, was filming for ITV breakfast television at Hempsted Car Boot Sale this morning.
Andi and Good Morning Britain crews were met with tens of locals keen to spin big and win £1,000.
“I didn’t know you could have a car boot sale on a Wednesday so it is quite nice to see so many come out mid-week to look for some bargains,” Andi said.
His visit to Gloucester followed trips to Reading and Blackpool and Andi will broadcast live from Exeter tomorrow and Bournemouth on Friday.
Andi, on his third visit to Gloucestershire, said: “It has been very nice and I didn’t know Gloucestonians had such strong accents but I have been taken by their warmth.”
Heather Brindley, 47, from Cherry on Top Designer Cakes in Gloucester, made an Edd the Duck sponge and Andi was horrified at the thought of his head being sliced by a knife.
She said: “I heard Andi Peters was going to be here so I thought I would make a vintage cake. I only started it late last night and I finished off his hair this morning.
“I was very pleased with his response to it but he said you simply can’t eat that.”
Wilf Hannis, 69, from Tuffley, span the wheel of cash and won £600.
He said: “It was a great experience and I have never won anything in my life before, so it was quite a shock when my name was called out.”
Wilf plans to spend the money on a headstone for his mother Francis’ grave, who died ten years ago aged 79.
