We've been chosen for new Wanted Down Under series!

Recommended Posts

Can't believe it! Not sure where we're going, (hoping to move to Perth) but they might send us to Darwin or Queensland! Still, it's a free trip down under, so not complaining!!

Positive skills assesment back, (Welfare Worker), waiting for IELTS results, then will complete visa application online. All looking good at the moment.

We're on facebook: Gary Ward (leeds network) and Helen Ward (Leeds Network)

Thanks for all your encouragement, I guess it's just one of those things that works out once in a lifetime. We had to fill in an application form, then the second stage was a 30 min phone call with all the family (Hubby 42, me 40, Dan 14, Becky 15 and Rachel 11). Then they wanted to visit with a camera and a fuzzy microphone on a stick! They stayed about an hour, then a couple of days ago they contacted us to say they wanted to use us and asked how flexible we were about destination and dates. They're gonna start filming in about 7 weeks time, with the new series going out in new year. It's possible they might film 2 series back to back so will still be looking for people to be on it.

Still can't believe it, we never win anything!

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Great news for you, it's a great opportunity for you and your family, we were the Jones family on the first series and then revisited on WDU and although it was only for 1 week it was a great experience.

 

Good luck to you all

 

How many more on here have been picked for the this series?

Wow, we will look forward to seeing that, but will try to bear in mind the editing process!

 

Oh, and don't forget that while Gary is having his day at work, you must go off with the kids but be "worrying about Gary and his work"!

It's lovely to watch it and to know that you are there now and helping others.

Congrats! We've been asked if we could do a similar stint on German TV. I said... if they pay us, then fine. If they want to help with boxes... even better. :laugh:
