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.
Those who reach the final round each week are asked to bet on whether their new-found partner will be able to answer certain questions.
The questions were general knowledge such as what was Elton John's original name?
- 1 Missing woman back home
- 2 Huntingdon man due in court on drug charges
- 3 Pastor in freedom of speech and job fight over Pride tweet
- 4 Teenage moped rider seriously injured in crash
- 5 Life would be better without mud says Anne Marie Hamilton
- 6 Read the fascinating history of The Old Bridge Hotel
- 7 Serious case review launched into death of Teddie Mitchell
- 8 New bus service launched to serve Hunts villages
- 9 Jail for Huntingdon man who threatened to kill woman
- 10 Man who died on A1 at Sawtry is named
The quiz is hosted by Adrian Chiles, who has presented the BBC's daily business programme, Working Lunch, and will be aired this autumn.
Norma, 53, who has three grown-up children, said: "I went for the audition in London six weeks ago and the programme I will be in will go out at the end of this month or the beginning of November.
"We did well but we were beaten at the end.
"We had a brilliant time and, as I was going in, I saw Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace) from EastEnders.
