Two participants weren’t happy because of the total results of a re-shot episode’s ending
Two contestants of the BBC’s National Lottery game show are fuming after being denied a £22,000 prize ($34,063), and have blown the whistle on the broadcasters for wanting to dupe viewers with a re-filming associated with show.
Friends Helen Griffiths and Rina Evans, who participated in a game show called ‘Break the Safe’ which aired as part of the weekly televised National Lottery draw, told the British press that the ending of the show ended up being secretly changed to reflect a different result, denying them a prize they state they would have won had the game been played properly the very first time round.
‘The episode is a fake,’ said 40-year-old Evans. ‘It’s complete deception for the viewer. It really is not one thing i would have expected from ever the BBC and people require to know the truth.’
The contestants who took part in the show were ordered maybe not to tell anyone of the re-recording, but not surprisingly, Griffiths and Evans were not too happy about the change, so were never more likely to keep quiet about the unbeneficial occurrence.
‘We had no expectations of winning but exactly what we did expect ended up being play that is fair’ stated Griffiths, also aged 40. ‘Instead, they have actually managed to make it look like this whole thing had been filmed on one day.’
