Thrifty campers sought for TV show
If so, TV director Claire Braden would like to hear from you as she is on the search for Britain’s “tightest person”.
Claire explained: “I’m on the hunt for the tightest, most money-saving person in Britain for a prime-time Channel 4 documentary. I want to find someone who is proud to be thrifty.
“I’m celebrating tightness as a good way to be, in this credit crunch. I want to meet people who have spent a lifetime being careful with their money and can pass on their money-saving tips.”
The programme, due to be shown on Channel Four in the new year, will follow Claire as she travels around the UK picking up penny-pinching tips as she goes – learning to live more cheaply and hoping to share a teabag with anyone willing to do so.
She said: “I want to find out what makes people tight with their money and how to be more careful with mine. I am after meeting some super-frugal Brits who can give me some brilliant money-saving tips.”
