A Godmanchester woman became a Perfect Stranger on a new BBC television quiz show when she was filmed for the programme on Friday.

Norma Castel took part on the show in which teams of two meet just seconds before they are filmed answering a series of questions.

Eight contestants - all strangers - are paired up into four teams of two for knockout rounds of questions. The winners could go home with up to £24,000.

However, Norma and Joanne, the partner she had met only moments before, went home with nothing having only reached the semi-final.
