Island Knowledge Leads To Big TV Prize

dale wintonA Nottinghamshire woman says she wants to return here after her knowledge of Scilly won her £16,600 on a TV quiz show.

Emma Cooper was a contestant on BBC1’s Saturday evening lottery show. Emma took the cash prize by identifying that Tresco and St Mary’s were part of our island group.

When the question master Dale Winton asked her whether she’d visited Scilly, she confirmed that she had and told Dale that “there was nothing here.”

Emma says that was her nerves talking and she felt terrible once she said it!

She wants to put the record straight and tell everyone that she really enjoyed Scilly. She says she stayed on St Mary’s and said it must have been a very quiet day in Hugh Town when she visited.
